Emerging Tools and Trends in Curbside Management
At the nexus of transportation and land use, on-street parking is a valuable, but underutilized transportation demand and curbside management tool. Cities often misunderstand its purpose and potential, while some politicians view it only as a revenue source. Over the last five years, pilot programs in cities across the US have revolutionized how people pay for parking, how cities manage their parking supply, and even how parking is tracked, priced, and found. Those cities that have managed to take this comprehensive approach are seeing surprising results. Parking, Pricing, and Management will explore the latest and best solutions cities are using to get the most out of their curbsides, from new payment systems to apps and sensor technologies that are creating data driven performance outcomes for the transportation system.
