DEVELOPMENT OF A DOWNTOWN PARKING MODEL

PROBABILISTIC MODELS WERE BUILT TO INVESTIGATE THE BEHAVIOR OF PEOPLE IN CHOOSING AMONG PARKING PLACES. THE EFFECTS ON PARKING CHOICES OF PARKING SYSTEM CHARACTERISTICS AND SOCIOECONOMIC FACTORS HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATED. THE ANALYTICAL TOOL USED WAS LOGIT ANALYSIS. METHODS WERE DEVISED FOR FINDING THE VALUE OF TIME SAVED WALKING FROM PARKING PLACE TO DESTINATION. THE METHODS WERE APPLIED TO DATA, AND VALUES OF TIME WERE ESTABLISHED THAT ARE SUITABLE FOR COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF DOWNTOWN PARKING FACILITY INVESTMENTS. THE BEHAVIORAL MODELS DEVELOPED CAN BE USED TO INVESTIGATE EXPECTED PARKING COSTS AND PARKING COST CHANGES, AND IT IS POSSIBLE TO ASSIGN PERSONS TO DIFFERENT PARKING DISTANCES FROM DESTINATIONS. /AUTHOR/
