Parking Information in Car Navigation Systems: A Stated-Choice Analysis of Car Drivers’ Preferences

This paper describes some first findings concerning car drivers’ preferences regarding parking information in car navigation systems. An internet based questionnaire is set up to investigate car drivers’ experiences regarding parking and parking information when traveling to city centers and car drivers’ preferences concerning the contents and form of parking information. The preferences are investigated using a stated choice experiment in which the respondents were invited to express their preference for the contents and form of parking information. The experiment shows that the provision of information about parking costs, the distance between parking and the final destination, and the provision of information concerning the number of free spaces are the most influential attributes shaping preferences. Some personal characteristics and situation-related characteristics influence the preferences for the contents and form of parking information.
