Description

Urban Parking: An International Perspective examines international parking best practices, highlighting the ways innovative cities are managing the allocation of finite space. Substantial amounts of land in metropolitan areas are dedicated to accommodate parked vehicles. Increased levels of consolidation, and densities have put new pressures on cities to better manage parking spaces, and re-imagine use for this space as ride-sharing, autonomous vehicles and other trends change the way people move, and their vehicle choices.

Urban Parking: An International Perspective addresses how recent socio-economic and development trends, such as young people driving less and delaying the obtainment of driver’s licenses, and the promotion of Transit Oriented Development (TOD), affect the future of land currently dedicated to parking in urban areas. The book provides a real-world look at how land use policies, such as replacing parking minimums with parking maximums, paid parking at suburban malls, and incentivizing park ‘n rides, continue to change city landscapes.

Urban Parking: An International Perspective helps guide transportation and city planners in proposing the best land-use, and parking solutions for their municipalities. The book inspires new avenues of transportation research for parking policy, helping provide future-thinking, efficient solutions for the parked car, and the space it consumes.

Key Features

  • Features structured case studies focused on summarizing current and emerging trends in parking policy and practice in cities around the world, such as Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Sydney and Moscow
  • Provides a systematic comparison of parking issues and approaches across a variety of situational and cultural contexts – examining each city’s transport modes, social trends, land use, technology and planning policies
  • Offers a bridge between transport planning research and practice related to the latest trends in parking and parking lot re-use

Readership

Academic researchers and graduate students in transportation modeling, planning and systems. Transportation practitioners involved in planning, feasibility studies, consultation and policy for transportation systems or infrastructure. Transportation public officials such as city managers, policy directors
