Abstract

Most universities are constantly challenged by the parking congestion problem. As one of the initial steps towards finding the solutions, this research set out to: (1) understand the parking demand and management strategies at four different university campuses; (2) identify innovative solutions to manage parking demand and supply on university campuses; and (3) propose a framework to analyze the relationship between parking management on a university campus with the environment and community health. To meet the first objective, the parking demand and supply managements at four selected universities, namely Cornell University (Cornell), The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), University of California at Davis (UCD) and University of South Florida (USF) were reviewed, analyzed and compared. For the second objective, this report surveyed the parking management practices in more than 300 universities and summarized innovative implementations of zoning, permit sales, pricing, access control, visitor payment, data collection, guidance, enforcement and multimodal integration. For the third objective, a framework based on the VISSIM microscopic traffic simulation followed by emission estimation using the CMEM emission estimation model has been proposed. A case study was performed, using UTEP campus as an example, to illustrate the application of the proposed framework. The VISSIM-CMEM framework estimated that the vehicle headed to UTEP parking lots between from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. contributed 248,707 kg of CO2.
