The operating characteristics of parking management tactics that are being used by a variety of jurisdictions throughout the United States are identified and reviewed. The assessment is based on an extensive literature review, followed by telephone interviews and on-site investigations. Six categories of parking management tactics are identified: (a) on-street supply, (b) off-street supply in activity centers, (c) pricing, (d) enforcement and adjudication, (e) fringe and corridor parking, and (f) marketing tactics. These tactics are generally part of the overall transportation system management plan to meet local transportation, economic, and environmental goals. The tactics reviewed include policies that offer incentives for multi-occupant-automobile travel and short-term parking for shoppers. Disincentives such as parking tax surcharges are also evaluated. The first four categories of tactics are discussed in detail. (Authors)
