Parking Habits Research Survey

ITE Members,

Please see below for a brief survey on parking habits being conducted by Richard Harney, a Master’s student at the University of Alaska, Southeast

Parking is a topic that is generally reviewed for compliance, based on prescriptive codes or regulations.  Areas that develop heavy amounts of congestion begin to re-review parking supply and demand only after it becomes a problem.  The research that has been reviewed focuses around the amount of parking, location of parking, and how to increase/decrease the amount based on the level of multimodal transportation methods being advocated for. Research identifying if the quantity of available parking spaces influence the amount of customers has not been found.  This is the question that will be investigated.

This survey will only be available for a week. The findings from this study may be shared with the membership at a future date.
