PARK-AND-RIDE/PARK-AND-PADDLE FEASIBILITY STUDY
The study develops and evaluates proposals to alleviate rush-hour traffic congestion on the bridge leading to the central business district of New Orleans. On-the-spot surveys of auto, bus and ferry commuters were conducted to determine how many there are; how many were commuting to work; where they were going and why they were using that mode of transportation. Park-and-ride and express bus and carpool lane programs in other cities were examined. An analysis was made of such factors as: The pattern of trip distribution between the Westbank area and the CBD; average daily parking fees in New Orleans as well as in other cities; the merits and drawbacks of other alternatives such as PRT; and availability and cost of suitable park-and-ride lot sites.
