THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DOWNTOWN PARKING SUPPLY AND TRANSIT USE

Parking policies can complement an overall urban transportation strategy by influencing both transit use and ridesharing. This article presents a study of the downtown parking supply and transportation policies of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, in relation to other Canadian cities. The focus of the study is the relationship between downtown parking supply and transit use. In a study survey, a strong relationship is found between peak-period modal split to public transit and the supply of downtown parking. Specifically, the proportion of downtown commuters using public transportation is inversely proportional to the ratio of parking stalls per downtown employee.
