How to transport cargo?

Brainport Smart District (BSD) wishes no privately-owned cars in the area. They want to achieve a neighbourhood without any cars by introducing hubs. Transport in the district (and from the hubs) will be arranged/will take place by autonomous shuttlebuses, (shared) bicycles, cargo bikes, by foot and electrical cars. This means a completely different public space design in the neighbourhood. What will the neighbourhood look like?
