Knowing What They'll Do: How Stanford Predicts Commuter Behavior and Targets TDM Investments
Brian Shaw, CAPP, Stanford University Department of Parking and Transportation

Investing in new and expanded transportation demand management (TDM) programs can seem risky when universities are unsure about potential outcomes. A predictive mode-share model reveals what the effects of different programs will be, allowing rational investment decisions to reduce unsustainable drive-alone commute trips. This presentation will review a recent Stanford study that developed planning tools to guide the selection of these strategies.

1.    Understand the inputs and data needed to create a mode share model.
2.    Apply the methodology to your own context.
3.    Understand the matrix of TDM program evaluation.

1:45 pm - 2:45 pm

Not Building the Church for Easter Sunday: Right-Sizing and Mixed-Use
Robert Chapman, Premier Parking

You don't build the church for Easter Sunday. The same rule is true for parking in an urban mixed-use development. Building the right amount of parking is essential as more city centers are created in our urban core. Too much parking is a waste and too little results in frustration and traffic-clogged streets. Now we add ride-share and the future of autonomous vehicles to the mix of how much parking to build?

1.    Identify the effect of shared parking to our urban core.
2.    Identify how ride-share and transit affect our planning.
3.    Discuss the effect of autonomous vehicles on the future of parking garages

Transportation Benefits of Parking Cash-Out, Pre-Tax Commuter Benefits, and Parking Surtaxes
Allen Greenberg, Federal Highway Administration

Many employers provide free parking at work, which encourages employees to drive alone. Strategies exist to allow employees to select the most beneficial travel options without presenting financial penalties. The Federal Highway Administration sponsored a study to understand the effect parking cash-out, pre-tax commuter benefits, and parking surtaxes can have on vehicle-miles traveled, congestion, emissions, and parking infrastructure costs. The research, peer review and public sector guidance will be analyzed.
Objectives are:
  1. Examine how cash-out programs reduce drive-alone rates.
  2. Demonstrate through the study results how implementing these policies can reduce employee vehicle travel, traffic congestion, and emissions.
  3.  Understand city-level analysis for nine cities to assess the potential effects of six ordinances, including tax-exempt commuter benefits and tax credit incentives.
