Assessing the Full Cost of Parking Provision from the Perspective of the Municipality

Over the past several years, a team of faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students have assembled a detailed database of parking in various cities that has informed a number of high-profile studies that have begun to influence the way in which planners think about parking. Initial studies focused on understanding how the off-street parking was built in the first place, how it evolved over time and how cities may have been differentially impacted by their parking policy decisions. This project now seeks to extend this work to quantify the hidden cost that parking policies represent to municipalities and how those costs differ between cities. The data from the project analysis will be used to calibrate a decision tool that cities can use to conduct scenario analysis for parking provision in their cities.
