DEVELOPMENT OF PRIVATE SERVICES AT PARK-AND-RIDE LOTS IN CENTRAL PUGET SOUND

The provision of a variety of private services, such as convenience markets, dry cleaners, video stores, and day care, at existing and proposed park-and-ride lots was investigated. Institutional and legal issues were studied and found not to pose insurmountable problems. However, they make development of new sites more attractive than development at existing park-and-ride lots. A process was created to assess the potential for development at nearly 100 sites in the Seattle area. An increasingly detailed evaluation process resulted in the selection of five case study sites--two proposed sites and three existing park-and-ride lots. A discussion of market and site requirements for retail development is included. It was concluded that private development of park-and-ride lots can help enhance patronage and rider satisfaction, provide lot security, and generate revenue for transit purposes.
