  3. Parking-Cruising Caused Congestion & Targeting Public Mitigation Investments

    SBC: NELSON/NYGAARD CONSULTING ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 142FH2

    Cruising for parking is a problem that cities have long struggled to address. Recent efforts by the FHWA in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and other cities have advanced the state of knowledge but large gaps remain. This project seeks to address these important gaps by using GPS traces, GPS-augmented travel surveys, and GPS traces with driver video to quantify the extent of cruising, and ...
