Choc-A-Block Parking Measures to Address Mobility Crisis

This study, performed by the Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi, India, looks into ways to assist New Delhi and other Indian cities in addressing air pollution from road transport and congestion challenges.

Global experience bears out that parking management is one of the most powerful instruments to reduce travel by personal vehicles that also influences commuting choices in favour of public transport.

According to the study, parking management – when combined with appropriately priced parking, limit on parking space and improved access through other modes of transport – is most effective in stimulating the switch from private cars to alternative modes of transport.
