The report discusses the feasibilities and impacts of parking management programs and auto control zones as air quality strategies in the National Capital Region. Legal, institutional and administrative problems are examined. Three parking programs involving higher rates and/or supply restrictions would be effective in achieving the 12% VMT reduction set forth in the Clean Air Act State Implementation Plan to achieve ambient air quality standards in 1977 (the $2 per day rate increase would approximately double current average daily rates). Implementation problems are more complex for supply restrictions than rate increases. Auto control zones have regional air quality potential in a 5-10 year time frame. A 69-page Summary Report, dated February 1976, is available.
