Parking Cruising Analyses Methodology

A New Approach Can Help Cities Measure and Solve Cruising for Parking

Thursday, February 16, 2023
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (EST)

Webinar Zoom link

Event Details

Cruising vehicles cause a host of problems, such as adding congestion and air pollution to already congested and polluted neighborhoods, driver frustration, and a potential loss of economic competitiveness at destinations where parking is hard to find and where alternative access modes are limited. With increased sensitivity to the need for curb management, many approaches to understanding curb use and the prevalence of cruising for parking have emerged.  FHWA has sponsored research to develop an open-source tool that can help cities or other entities to measure and understand cruising for parking and the effects of policy interventions on parking search behaviors. This webinar will introduce and describe the Cruise Detector tool, as well as show some example case studies where the tool was applied.
