Parking Behavior and Policy

This article introduces a special issue on parking behavior and policy. Parking policies can play a key role within the broader context of managing transport demand. Private vehicles can spend over 90% of their time parked with considerable consequences for land use and economic activities in urban areas. Drivers cruising for parking have important impacts on traffic congestion, air pollution, and accidents. However, research in the field of user behavior when choosing parking has been limited and management policies have often been developed on an ad hoc basis, ignoring theoretical models or available empirical evidence. This special issue publishes quality papers which can contribute to the understanding of user choice when parking and to the development of parking management policies to help in achieving more sustainable mobility in urban areas. The special issue is focused on the behavior of users when choosing the type and location of a parking spot with special emphasis on the evaluation of different parking policies. It is about improving the theoretical knowledge of user choice processes when parking, as well as about the different policies that can significantly influence these decisions.
