Development of Level of Service Analysis Procedures and Performance Measurement Systems for Parking

In SPARKMAN, a C2SMART Year 3 project, University of Texas, El Paso (UTEP) researchers have: (1) Developed a university student parking lot Zoning and Zone Permit Pricing (Z2P2) model and coded it as a software tool named SPARKMAN and (2) Conducted a student survey, determined the ITS needs for campus parking based on the survey data, and established the Level of Service (LOS) criteria for parking. This proposed year 4 project will focus on the LOS for parking and will extend the concept of LOS for parking to a Performance Measurement System (PMS) for parking. The objectives of this project are: (1) To develop LOS analysis procedures for open surface parking lots; (2) To develop a LOS analysis procedure for multistory parking garages; (3) To develop a Concept of Operations (ConOps) of a PMS in smart parking garages; and (4) To explore PMS for street parking using existing smart technology. The LOS analysis procedure will incorporate field data collection procedures by traditional traffic survey techniques including sensing and potential use of mobile smartphone applications.
