Reducing Demand for Parking Infrastructure: Characterization of Options and Likely Users of Destination-Oriented Rideshare

As demand for automobile-oriented infrastructure has reached the point of capacity and expansion of supply has reached substantial constraints, there is a need to ease congestion and demand on the highway and support infrastructure.. Rideshare is one approach to reducing demand for vehicle infrastructure while maintaining or increasing person trips, yet no comprehensive inventory of ridesharing strategies has been compiled. This research sought to characterize the state of the practice for destinations (in this case, university campuses) that typically have parking constraints and to identify the likely groups interested in participating in rideshare programs geared toward managing parking demand. A scan of university practices and a survey of potential users for a rideshare system designed to alleviate parking demand revealed a need to target market rideshare programs in terms of schedule flexibility, program formality, and location.
