PARK-AND-RIDE LOCATION STUDIES
This park-n-ride study represents a joint effort of Federal, State, Regional, and local governmental bodies to improve mass transit and to demonstrate their commitment to achieving federal air quality standards in the Denver area. The feasibility study for the development of park-n-ride sites included looking at similar facilities in other cities: Seattle, Washington; Rochester, New York; Atlanta, Georgia; Los Angeles, California; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Miami, Florida. Planning guidelines for initial site selection in the Denver region have been developed; listed are macro criteria to be used in determining the areas to be served by park-and-ride facilities and micro criteria used to identify a specific site, sites will be chosen which afford maximum reduction in VMT and thereby improve regional air quality. Future transportation plans and future growth areas will be identified and included as factors in location analysis. Park-and-ride lots will be designated to accommodate the bicyclist, pedestrians, and the handicapped.
