Development of a "Universal" Residential Public Transportation Pass as Part of a Comprehensive Multi-modal Approach to Urban Parking

The City of Cambridge administers a unique Parking and Transportation Demand Management (PTDM) Ordinance which requires developers to implement a series of measures to reduced single occupant vehicle (SOV) commuting by 10% below 1990 levels. The relationship between the PTDM ordinance and other city regulations that affect parking supply is not yet clear, and neither is the impact of the PTDM ordinance on commuter behavior and mode share. A better understanding of these relationships can be ascertained by examining the decade of PTDM monitoring data. Cross-sectional analysis will be important to compare the outcomes in PTDM versus non-PTDM sties, and a longitudinal approach can help reveal the extent to which the different stages of parking supply regulation are interconnected (from planning to design to implementation) and how and/or if the City's permitting and program design processes have evolved through time based on observing past outcomes.
