Influencing External Factors – Reducing Parking Demand

This paper describes how transit ridership is influenced by many factors. These factors are commonly grouped as internal factors such as the amount and quality of transit service provided and external factors such as land use, the price of driving, etc. While the implication is that transit agencies can control internal factors and not external factors, transit agencies can influence external factors. One possible area is parking. This paper will describe how the Greater Bridgeport Transit Authority injected itself into the redevelopment of downtown Bridgeport – in particular focusing on parking issues. The ultimate goal is reducing the demand for parking of individuals working or living in downtown Bridgeport to enable the type of development desired and consequently increase transit ridership.
