Restrictions on metropolitan core area travel by private vehicles to limit air pollution and to reduce fuel consumption will necessitate extensive programs for change-of-mode facilities on line-haul public transport routes. The parking spaces in the core area must be transferred so as to minimize the total vehicle-kilometers traveled throughout the area subject to technical, public policy, and economic constraints. This creates a need for a master plan that will identify the apportionment and extent of parking and other change-of-mode facilities, including feeder bus service at line-haul public transport routes. This paper briefly describes the salient transportation and parking features in Boston as a background to formulating a genralized public policy and a linear programming approach for the preparation of optimal plans incorporating a defined range of objectives and constraints.
