PARKING MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES FOR REDUCING AUTOMOBILE EMISSIONS

This report defines the concept of parking management and explores how parking management can be used to improve air quality, support mass transit, reduce energy consumption and improve the amenities of life in urban areas. Specific aspects of this analysis were developments of a prototype parking management plan for the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area illustrating types of measures which can be used for parking management; evaluation of the socioeconomic impacts of parking measures in the plan and their effectiveness in reducing vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and improving air quality; development of a parking management planning process which integrates local and regionwide planning through the use of regional guidelines. Four target areas in the D.C. region were studied in detail: the D.C. Core, Rosslyn, Va., Silver Spring, Md., and Centreville, Va. A regional plan was then developed from information gathered in the target area studies, including an analysis of regionwide parking related goals and problems.
