Part two of the Taming Traffic webinar series will focus on the critical role that parking management plays in urban traffic reduction. Parking management has long been overlooked by cities as a tool for reducing demand for private vehicles. However, on- and off-street parking reforms have been shown to reduce vehicle kilometers traveled and greenhouse gas emissions, increase parking turnover, and generate revenue.
In this webinar, panelists from two ITDP regional offices, China and Mexico, will share how pricing parking and other parking reforms reduces demand for private vehicle use and generates revenue to support sustainable transport improvements. We’ll discuss cities’ motivations for reforming on- and off-street parking, and their impacts on traffic, use of public space, and public perception of other traffic reduction strategies.
