Smart parking management project : a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) District parking demonstration

This report describes the research and feasibility analysis for the design and implementation of a smart parking management field test at the Rockridge BART station in the East San Francisco Bay Area. The study presented the opportunity to apply smart parking technologies with the objective of expanding effective parking capacity, transit ridership, and farebox revenues. The report consists of three primary sections: 1) a literature review evaluating the effectiveness of different types and applications of smart parking management systems; 2) a feasibility analysis comprised of focus groups, surveys, and observational analyses guiding the development and initial evaluation of the smart parking field test; and, 3) a smart parking project description, including the applied demonstration design and technology.
