Recognizing the significant cost of parking and the impact parking structures and surface parking have on travel mode choice and on land use patterns in the longer term, we have established this website to provide resources and assistance for communities making progress on this often difficult issue.
A sample of some of the primary parking strategies and management techniques being implemented in cities across the country today include:
- Reduced Parking Requirements - parking maximums and shared parking for complimentary uses
- Pricing Parking - unbundling parking costs from housing, cashing out employee parking, and metering
- Carsharing Programs
- Parking Districts - programs that benefit local residents and businesses
- Communtiy Friendly Parking Designs
