Contemporary Approaches to Parking Pricing
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently released a primer on contemporary approaches to parking pricing in the U.S. Parking pricing has become one of many travel demand management tools that local governments can use to help alleviate congestion and encourage people to use alternative modes of transportation. The primer covers modern parking pricing applications, current technologies, and model user accommodations currently being practiced in cities around the U.S. The primer also provides innovative parking policies and methods for gaining public support for parking policy changes. CMAP also issued a report, "Parking Strategies to Support Livable Communities," earlier this year.
