Study on the Hierarchical Structure of Park and Ride Facilities in Historic City

Centripetal motorized traffic demand in historic urban areas has been significantly increasing due to urbanization and motorization development. Solutions to meet the traffic demand are also mainly constrained by the heritage road network and regional cultural conservation. Hence, it is suggested that by adopting a "Park and Ride" transportation plan in historic cities can reduce the traffic demand. This paper firstly analyzes the relationships between park and ride facilities hierarchy and the urban spatial structure. Ways of historical cities exposition based on urban spatial structure are then discussed, followed by a proposal of park and ride facilities hierarchical structure in historic cities. This paper finally looks at park and ride facility function, layout requirements and its public transit service demand, respectively.
