Parking policies are an integral part of implementing equitable transit-oriented development (eTOD). Policies such as “free parking” (which increases housing and consumer costs), zoning and land use regulations that require an overabundancce of parking, and the application of suburban parking models to dense urban environments can have negative impacts on low-income communities. This report explores alternative parking strategies that can advance eTOD and provides examples of cases where parking reform has been implemented.
