Decouple and Share Parking

Bring the price of parking closer to its value, while rewarding efficient use
  • Jeff Speck


LIKE DRIVING, low-priced parking is a “free good:” people use it much more than they would if its cost were closer to its value, which creates a powerful incentive to drive. For this reason, any serious attempt to make a city more walkable has to include a commitment to eliminate free parking at home and at work, the two places where it has the biggest impact on car ownership and use.
