Shared Parking

Parking demands, like other transport demand patterns, operate on a peak and off-peak schedule depending on related land use. Distinct but complementary patterns, such as “office parking” that is generally empty in the evenings and on weekends and “residential parking” that is generally fuller in the evenings, offers an opportunity for cities to better satisfy residents and commuters without increasing supply. Shared parking is a land use/development strategy that optimizes parking capacity by allowing complementary land uses to share spaces, rather than producing separate spaces for separate uses.
