Conference paper


With the economic development of China’s large and medium-sized cities, more and more families start to own private cars, which results in a fast increase of vehicle ownership. Meanwhile, the development of parking facilities is both lagging behind and uneven. These problems seriously affect travel, traffic, and life quality in urban area, as the parking problem has become very important and affected sustainable urban development. Parking management, as an important part of traffic management in modern cities, has been mature and effective in the developed countries and regions. This paper investigates and analyzes the situation of China’s urban parking problem. Referring to the measures of foreign countries, we propose five feasible policies to deal with the parking problem of China’s major cities: restriction, construction, management, system organization, and the legislation.
