Parking Lot Design: Theory and Concepts

Many facets of parking are interrelated. Parking programs usually evolve from parking studies that determine the supply of parking and the current demand, as well as estimates of future parking demand. Parking facility planning and design requires a determination of the number of spaces needed, the proper location for these spaces, and a workable layout with acceptable operating controls. In addition, other factors need to be considered, such as characteristics of the transportation system and users, transportation attractions and generators, and transportation operations.
