Congestion Costs: How Smart Parking Can Be a Solution to Urban Congestion

Tuesday, October 23, 9:45 am - 10:45 am

Congestion is a major headache for commuters, businesses, urban planners, and economic development authorities costing all stake-holders both time and money. There is a false assumption that parking is part of the congestion problem as it encourages more traffic in urban areas.

In this session you will learn how NPA’s latest research report debunks that myth and reframes issue of congestion to highlight how important it is to keep roadways and curbs clear to facilitate traffic flow and reduce congestion. The session will highlight the causes of congestion (curb surfing, curb idling, double parking, rideshare, etc) and it will outline how much congestion costs cities, commuters, and economic development authorities.

The report’s authors will demonstrate how parking can be an important part of the transportation infrastructure and how shared mobility should include parking in smarter cities as a positive way to reduce congestion.

Curb Appeal: How Cincinnati’s Integrated Parking Management Approach Has Raised Revenue and Reduced Congestion

Thursday, October 25, 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Faced with inconvenient payment options and growing meter maintenance issues, Cincinnati implemented an array of technologies to make parking more convenient and generate revenue.

Learn how Cincinnati used a holistic approach to integration and parking management to reinvent its curbside parking system. By addressing enforcement, metering technology, violations processing, hearings, collections, and regulatory policy, the City not only made parking easier, it improved turnover, shifted demand, and generated vital revenue.

Parking revenues were earmarked to help fund multimodal projects like the Cincinnati Bell Connector, the City’s streetcar, further reducing congestion and helping solve the first- and last-mile problem.

Daniel Fortinberry, Parking Division Manager, City of Cincinnati
