URBAN CORRIDOR DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM, MANHATTAN CBD-NORTH JERSEY CORRIDOR. EVALUATION OF FRINGE PARKING
The fringe parking program in New Jersey is used as a means of transferring and diverting auto users to transit on the periphery to the Manhattan CBD. Its effectiveness as a system can be measured in that 5300 parking spaces with occupancy of 77 percent of capacity can reduce commuting vehicle miles of travel by 40 million annually. Over the past 20 years a fringe parking system for auto-bus transfers has grown and expanded away from the CBD following the path of urban emigration. The six park-and-ride facilities examined in this report range from those immediately adjacent to the Manhattan CBD to as far away as 36 miles. The facilities consist of Port Authority Bus Terminal and parking lots in New Jersey at Weehawken, North Bergen, Ridgefield, East Brunswick, and Willowbrook.
