The subject of this study is the mobility hubs, intermodal stations classified as the main nodes of a public transportation network. Because of the variety of transportation modes that these points articulate, they are privileged areas of accessibility and connectivity in both local and metropolitan scale, overcoming the exclusive functional and technical definition as transportation equipment and being considered powerful inductors of urban transformations. The study context is the São Paulo metropolitan area, involving its current urban issues and the alternatives planned for public transportation system. We seek to discuss key points related to the interaction between mobility networks and urbanization in the metropolis, including topics such as the urban sprawl, the instability derived from the expansion pattern of the urbanized area and plans that intends to link mobility and land use. We deal with these themes through literature review, the analysis of urban master plans (PDE 2002 and 2014) and the metropolitan mobility plans (PITU 2020 and 2025), as well as a purposeful step in which we identify and classify the mobility hubs in São Paulo planned transportation network. From this last level, we selected some case studies to investigate their influence areas. Furthermore, this step tries to provide parameters for urban design scale, which is defined at the end of the study, as an essential tool to work in the contemporary urban reality and to enable proposals compromised to the urban density intensification and the reduction of the (AU)
