The restraint of the private car at a university campus

The university of Queensland's st lucia campus has a total of 18,700 staff and students of part or full time status. There are 16,860 private motor cars registered to be brought on site, but only 4340 parking spaces. During any typical semester day almost every space is occupied. With the likelihood of a continued growth of student numbers and car availability, more congestion and use of unauthorised spaces is likely to occur. In order to assess the potential for car parkers to change to other modes, a questionnaire was served to all car drivers entering the campus on a day in September, 1977. The results showed that a restriction of access to the campus will result in only a small reduction in parking demand with many drivers coming earlier to find a place. Some alternative solutions are proposed.
