MILLENNIUM DOME, U.K.: PARKING FOR 1% OF VISITORS
Approximately 12 million visitors are expected at the Millennium dome exposition and entertainment complex in the London borough of Greenwich during the year 2000. To make sure that all but disabled visitors come by public transport--a condition imposed on the company managing the event--parking spaces outside the Dome will be restricted to disabled visitors, just one percent of the total. To achieve this objective, planners believe that 35% of visitors will purchase combined admission and London Underground tickets that are being offered. For the remaining visitors, it is projected that 28% will come by shuttle services from remote park-and-ride lots, 17% by bus, 7% by riverbus boats, 5% by taxi, 5% by a new busway-rail link, and 2% via cable car.
