Drexel Study Finds Low Parking Costs May Encourage Automobile Use

The low cost of parking in many American cities may contribute to urban development that relies on automobile use and undercuts planners’ efforts to increase public transport, according to a new baseline study of comprehensive public parking costs led by the Drexel University School of Public Health. The article, “Public parking fees and fines: a survey of US cities”, is now published online ahead of print in Public Works Management and Policy. It reports on downtown public parking costs after surveying public parking agencies in 107 U.S. cities.
