On-Street Parking Pricing Guide

September 2021


Rapid motorization has been a global trend in recent decades and has presented troubling consequences, such as air and noise pollution, traffic-related injuries and deaths, and inequity. As vehicle use increases, so does demand for storing vehicles, both for short-term stays on the street near drivers’ destinations and longer-term stays in off-street lots and garages. Managing and pricing parking is therefore critical to ensure equitable use of public space among high-volume, low-polluting transport modes like public transport, cycling, and walking.


We know that high-quality public transport, cycling, and walking infrastructure benefits users as well as drivers by reducing congestion as demand shifts away from driving. Efficient parking management and pricing enable all cities to prioritize valuable street space for people and businesses rather than cars, resulting in more equitable and healthier communities.
