Park-and-Ride (PnR) lots are an increasingly common element of many areas' plans for air quality conformity. However, few, if any, travel models estimate the impacts of carpool PnR lots, and it is not at all clear that they always improve air quality. Many travel models in the larger urban areas accommodate transit PnR lots, but, as with carpool PnR lots, it is not clear that adding transit PnR lots always improves air quality. The procedure described in this paper addresses these concerns. It permits the rigorous analysis of the impacts of both carpool and transit PnR lots within a network-based model structure. This procedure has been implemented in the travel model recently developed for the Reading, Pennsylvania area (Berks County).
