Synthesis of Information Related to Transit Problems. Topic SH-15. Transit Supportive Parking Policies and Programs

Parking is widely recognized as an important factor influencing transit access/ridership. An increasing number of communities and transit agencies have been revising their parking policies to encourage transit usage and to minimize resources consumed for parking. Some of the community policies have included pricing, supply and demand management, shared parking, and preferential treatment of specific groups. Recent implementation of transit supportive parking policies affords the opportunity to assess how effective they have been and to inform local communities and transit agencies of successful practices. This synthesis study will document the current state of the practice in transit supportive parking policies and programs. This information will help transit agencies answer the question about how parking policies affect transit access and ridership.
