Most parking research to date has been conducted in Western countries. Parking: An International Perspective is different. Taking a planetary view of urbanism, this book examines parking policies in 12 cities on five continents: Auckland, Bangkok, Doha, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Nairobi, Rotterdam, Santiago, Sao Paulo, Shenzhen, Singapore, and Tokyo. Chapters are similarly structured, and contain detailed information about the current parking strategies and issues in these cities. The discussion of parking is placed in the context of transport, mobility, land-use, society, technology, and planning in each of these cities
- Features structured case studies focused on summarizing current and emerging trends in parking policy and practice in cities around the world
- 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 space re-use
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
