Educational Opportunity: FHWA Parking Workshop

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is hosting a FREE workshop, “Contemporary Tools and Approaches for Parking Pricing and Management,” to be held in Durham, NC at the Durham Convention Center (301 W. Morgan St. Durham, NC) on September 14, 2015 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

This workshop is designed primarily for parking program managers and transportation policy leaders from local governments to exchange ideas with national leaders and among themselves. It will feature national experts –including representatives from SFpark, where parking meter rates vary by block and time of day to ensure availability, and King County’s (Seattle’s) Right Size Parking tool, which guides policymakers and developers by providing area and parcel parking utilization rates reflective of development and site characteristics, as well as transit/bicycle access and parking prices–who will join local leaders to share insights and lessons learned.  Join your regional colleagues to exchange experiences and information with each other and with national experts on a wide range of parking topics, including:

  • Parking pricing policy
  • Parking payment technologies
  • Data collection and system management strategies
  • Parking management issues facing cities
  • Innovative strategies to reduce parking demand and address the needs of preferred users
  • Tools for developing a local parking pricing and management action plan
