ALLOCATION OF PARKING DEMAND IN A CBD

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES A BEHAVIORAL MODEL FOR ESTIMATING THE USE OF PARKING SPACES IN A CBD. THE MODEL EXAMINES DRIVERS' ULTIMATE DESTINATIONS IN THE CBD AND USES RELATIONS BETWEEN WALKING TIME AND PARKING COSTS TO SIMULATE THEIR CHOICES OF PARKING FACILITIES. THE MODEL RECOGNIZES THAT PEOPLE DIFFER AS TO HOW THEY EQUATE WALKING TIME TO PARKING COST AND THAT DRIVERS DESTINED FOR A PARTICULAR BLOCK IN THE CBD DO NOT NECESSARILY ALL USE THE SAME PARKING FACILITY. THE MODEL PROVIDES FOR THE DIFFERENT CHOICES BY DISTRIBUTING PERSONS IN EACH BLOCK AMONG DIFFERENT PARKING FACILITIES ON THE BASIS OF TIME AND COST. BY ALLOCATING PARKING DEMAND ON THE BASIS OF DRIVER BEHAVIOR, THE MODEL PROVIDES A VALUABLE TOOL FOR STUDYING THE LOCATION OF NEW PARKING FACILITIES. ITS APPLICATION IS PARTICULARLY RELEVANT TO THE SITING OF PERIPHERAL PARKING FACILITIES SERVED BY PEOPLE-MOVER SYSTEMS.
