Effects of a new on-street parking management scheme on demand of a park-and-ride facility: a before – after analysis

This paper investigates how parking policies in central urban areas affect the demand for commuter park-and-ride facilities. Particularly, the impact of introducing the new parking management scheme in the Athens central area, to the demand for parking at the Fix park-and-ride facility located at the city outskirts is investigated. Demand data for the periods before and after the parking management scheme introduction are analyzed, any other trend unrelated to the impact of the new parking scheme is removed and a non-parametric statistical test (Man – Whitney U test) is applied. These preliminary results provide evidence of the new parking policy's positive impacts to the demand for commuter park-and-ride facilities.
