Micromobility and Car Parking

Published by User User

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
