Parking Search-Caused Congestion: Where’s All the Fuss?
This paper presents a method for determining parking search behavior using Global Positioning System (GPS) traces. The research takes advantage of a GPS based household travel survey, an extensive dataset of GPS with video, and a commercially purchased set of trip segments. Strategies for data cleaning, matching traces to digitized networks, assessing the probability that a trace is of good quality, and strategies for determining whether or not a trip involves excess parking search are described. The authors define and operationalize several definitions of cruising. Preliminary results show the extent of cruising in San Francisco, CA –between 5% and 6% citywide, and Ann Arbor, Michigan –about 3% to 4% in the downtown core.
