Views More Parking: How the D.O.T. Views More Parking Impact on Traffic & Congestion According to Don H. Pickrell, Chief Economist at DOT , Volpe Institute, Cambridge, MIT (issued in the Spring edition of ULI’s “Smart Growth” program 1999): “……recent research shows, that over 50 % of the traffic in typical down towns is simply on the road, cruising around blocks in searching for vacant convenient parking spaces……..” Emission Savings Analysis for a 924 space RP Garage : Emission Savings Analysis for a 924 space RP Garage ASSUMPTIONS: Number of cars and lot size for a conventional garage: 924 car garage Footprint = 150’ x 270’ 8 levels Use of express ramps Assuming one turn per day per stall Assuming 275 days /year Average Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) (assuming travel to mid point at 4th level) per car per day to park and to exit = 5280’: ( [2x 240’+ 2x 90’] x 4 levels) x 2 for entry & exit * CONVERSION TO POLLUTANTS REDUCTION PER YEAR: Taking an average for an “average” passenger car and an “average” light truck.
