Micromobility and Car Parking
In this episode, Horace and Oliver discuss Donald Shoup’s work, The High Cost of Free Parking, and why micromobility offers such a compelling counter to the dominant mindset that has existed around parking for the last 70 years.
Specifically, we cover:
the financial and spatial impact of parking minimums in the US
The Catch-22 of parking legislation - parking creates sprawled landscapes that increases the need for them to move around.
The importance of pricing parking appropriately
The odd behaviour that our misplacing of car parks has created in Japan and the US
the logical use case for autonomy in RV’s if we can’t better price/allocate roadspace
Why micromobility offers such a fundamental rethink of space allocation and parking requirements
