INFLUENCE OF PARK-AND-RIDE FACTORS IN MODAL SHIFT PLANNING

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the use of park-and-ride facilities and municipal parking policies as a means of controlling the modal split in urban areas. A discriminant model was used to examine the reasons why park-and-ride patrons shifted to that mode from a former automobile mode. An attitudinal survey was also used to substantiate the model results. The reduction in travel cost appears to be the main reason for the modal shift. The primary conclusion is that a park-and-ride facility can be used as a planning tool to adjust the modal split if the service is properly designed.
