This study is concerned with the determination of design criteria for prediction of parking demand at park-and-ride facilities in medium-to-large cities in the United States. Ninety-three change-of-mode parking facilities in 10 cities were used in the study. Data were collected through a mail survey. The report includes an analysis of important physical, operational, and locational characteristics of change-of-mode parking facilities experienced by 26 agencies operating 73 rail and 20 bus facilities. The change-of-mode demand is estimated through a prediction equation developed by linear regression analysis. The prediction model was tested for its applicability by using separately supplied data from a committee of the institute of Traffic Engineers. Input to the model consists mainly of characteristics of the city, the transit system, and the location of the parking facility.
