PARKING RESTRAINT AND PARK-AND-RIDE MODELLING

The article discusses parking restraint and park-and-ride travel in the context of a transportation model. The model was developed to test and evaluate a number of 1986 transportation strategies for the Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council. Details are given of the use of subzones to account for different types of parking facilities within a zone, and to model park-and-ride movements to a central area. An assessment is made of the effect of the split between public and private transport when there are some privately owned car parking spaces available in the area. Park-and-ride trips are modelled as a separate mode. The split between private, public and park-and-ride modes is carried out in one operation at the distribution stage so that all constraints and trip opportunities interact simultaneously. The authors claim that little program development is needed to incorporated these facilities into standard transportation planning programs. /TRRL/
