A MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS OF A PARK-AND-RIDE SCHEME

A mathematical analysis of a park-and-ride scheme coupled with a pedestrian precinct is made for the journey to work. The effects of speed ratios on major and access roads are calculated, together with the variation of time savings, for given speed ratios, with the number of parking stations available. It is shown that there are limits on speed ratios and numbers of parking stations after which savings become negligible, and that dense concentrations of either homes or workplaces have a marked effect on the savings.(a) /TRRL/
