A NEW MEASURE OF PARKING ACTIVITY--PARKING ACTIVITY INDEX

Reliable and timely data on parking characteristics are essential for applying parking management techniques. Three key pieces of data help parking planners assess the usage of parking facilities: average occupancy, duration of stay, and turnover of vehicles per stall. In this article, the author describes a Parking Activity Index (PAI) that allows the comparison of on- and off-street parking facilities via a relative measure of the three parking characteristics mentioned above. Comparative data from parking studies in three urban communities in Western Canada for a typical 8-hour survey period are provided.
