Streetfilms MBA: Parking Reform

In Transportation, Video by Greater City Providence2 Comments

Streetfilms has launched a new series of videos, Moving Beyond the Automobile. As Streetfilms releases each video in the series, we’ll be posting them here for you to enjoy.

In the tenth and final video in Streetfilms’ Moving Beyond the Automobile series, we are talking about parking reform. From doing away with mandatory parking minimums, to charging the right price for curbside parking, to converting on-street parking spots into parklets and bike corrals, cities are latching onto exciting new ideas to make more room for people in our cities and repurpose the valuable public space that lines our streets.

“Historically the parking problem was defined as there not being enough convenient places to put your car,” UPenn professor Rachel Weinberger told Streetfilms, “but increasingly cities are starting to understand that the parking problem could be defined differently and it could be the case that there is too much parking.”
