Factors Affecting Residential Parking Occupancy in Madison, Wisconsin

Type Policy Brief or Report
Year 2017
Level City or Town

Policy Areas Community Development, Public Spaces, Transportation & Mobility
To manage parking provisions and minimize the negative impacts of excess parking effectively, policy makers need a full understanding of how much existing parking is used and how factors affect its use. This paper presents a study of multi-family residential parking occupancy and related factors at 80 sites in Madison, Wisconsin. It found that during the evening peak, the existing supply of parking was only 67% occupied. This excess parking increases construction costs and congestion. Practitioners should put policies in place to reduce excess parking while ensuring that buildings provide the minimum amount of parking needed to satisfy demand.
