Solving the Challenge of Employee Parking Demand: A Dialogue for Employers
SF Environment and the SF County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) hosted a workshop
to discuss effective strategies to manage employee parking demand. The goal of the workshop was to learn about employee parking challenges, and what the public sector can offer by way of information, incentives, and technology that would best help address these challenges while reducing drive-alone trips.
Participants included parking and transportation providers, business organizations, and businesses of various sizes. Separated into sector and by size, participants discussed:
The information gathered from the workshop will be used to inform decisions about the pilot programs under the Transportation Demand Management Partnership Project.
This workshop was made possible through a grant to the Citywide Transportation Demand Management Project, a partnership between four city agencies (the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA), the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), the Planning Department, and SF Environment) and private sector partners, including employers in the greater downtown area, southwestern neighborhoods and medical institutions. The goal of the project is to develop a set of programs and policies that respond to real and perceived barriers to taking trips by transit, bicycling, walking, or carpooling/vanpooling. The programs being piloted are meant to be effective, scalable and sustainable over time and build partnerships with and among private and institutional actors to achieve more efficient and wider-spread mode-shift impacts.
