A PLACE IN THE SUN, OR A SHELTER IN THE STORM? A STUDY OF PARKING SERVICES

This parking facilities study was conducted at the Winnipeg International Airport to assess the user's opinion and attitudes towards the construction of a covered parking lot at the airport. It was already clear from anecdotal evidence that people wanted to have a covered parking facility. The first objective was to determine the parking fares users are willing to pay for parking at this facility on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. If the facility is built, there are several additional car services that could be implemented to enhance the parking facility. The second objective was to determine the appeal of these ancillary services, such as oil change, car wash, tire service, greater amount of security, decrease in price, free parking on weekends, and valet parking. The paper describes the methodology of the study, analysis and interpretation of results, and a set of recommendations.
