This article offers an analytic approach to resolving parking problems in downtown Zagreb (Croatia). The core of the city was built over 100 years ago (many parts are older) and is not able to accommodate all the motor vehicles drawn to the downtown functions. After detailing the present situation, the authors propose a gradual solution to this complex problem, using operative and planning measures. They note that introduction of fast public urban transport would provide passengers with improved services (notably in travel time). The present slow and inefficient public urban transport burdens the present lack of adequate parking by practically stimulating the purchase of more passenger cars. For example, passenger cars have increased 69% from 1995 (n = 219,257) to 2003 (n = 370,529). In addition to better public transport, the authors call for changes in the present parking structure, including building parking garages, adding park and ride facilities, reducing the number of regular downtown parking spaces, and changing the parking fees structure.
