PARKING POLICY, PARKING LOCATION DECISIONS AND THE DISTRIBUTION OF CONGESTION

The paper develops and tests a model which characterizes the parking location decisions of individual tripmakers. The model is designed to offer information concerning the effects of alternative parking policies on parking location decisions and therefore the effects on the distribution of congestion in an urban area. The paper also offers some explanation for the low elasticity of auto use with respect to changes in parking costs found in some modal choice studies.
