The Parking Market: How Chicago’s metered parking concession affects active transportation
We have reissued our report on Chicago’s metered parking concession. The Parking Market: How Chicago’s metered parking concession affects active transportation includes new information that Active Trans obtained through conversations with the City’s Department of Revenue and through parts of the concession that previously were unavailable.
Throughout the swirl of reports and back talk on the increasing price of Chicago’s parking meters, Active Trans was there to provide a unique perspective: pricing parking meters correctly is good public policy. Using the revenue to invest in walking, biking and transit is even better policy. When executed properly, charging the market rate price to park will lead to cleaner air, safer streets and less congestion. Read the report here.
