NEW CONCEPT IN URBAN PARKING

This paper reviews parking policy options for major metropolitan areas as they relate to demonstrated demands, transit-service extensions, and community preferences. It identifies approaches to dealing with community concerns through a participatory process which involves continuous review of alternatives and programs. Attitudes and characteristics of parkers and other downtown travelers in the Boston metropolitan area are related to downtown and transit parking supply and demand. The range of available transportation policy options imply combinations of increased, stabilized, or reduced supply within the city center with complimentary adjustments in transit-related parking.
