Less Parking, More Carsharing: Supporting Small-Scale Transit-Oriented Development

Carsharing provides short-term vehicle rentals to members and is designed to provide the same convenience as a personal vehicle. This study seeks to identify whether carsharing provides a viable means to reduce the development barrier posed by minimum parking requirements for low-to-medium-density infill development in transit station areas, and what policy mechanisms would effectively link parking requirements to carsharing. Four research topics are explored: parking demand, carshare market characteristics, carshare pod viability, and policy mechanisms to reduce parking requirements and support carsharing.
