Parking 2.0

Have you seen Parkatmyhouse ? Its a type of market product that couldn’t work without the internet –  no one really tried it with classified ads in local papers, for example. So as a transport planner what should be my reaction?

Will it generate trips? Is it adding significantly to parking supply? What about its impact on parking costs? Tax issues? Planning law?

I will watch and see, the number of places where it will work are pretty limited. A search on Oxford identified 5 locations within walking distance of the centre, at £5 per day, £25 – £30 per week – cheaper than the Westgate MSCP I suppose. One helpfully speaks of the number of buses to the city, surely you could park for free further out, use the P&R or even get the bus from home?
