The National Academy of Sciences was established in 1863 by an Act of Congress, signed by President Lincoln, as a private, non- governmental institution to advise the nation on issues related to science and technology. Members are elected by their peers for outstanding contributions to research. Dr. Marcia McNutt is president. The National Academy of Engineering was established in 1964 under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences to bring the practices of engineering to advising the nation. Members are elected by their peers for extraordinary contributions to engineering. Dr. C. D. Mote, Jr., is president. The National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) was established in 1970 under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences to advise the nation on medical and health issues. Members are elected by their peers for distinguished contributions to medicine and health. Dr. Victor J. Dzau is president. The three Academies work together as the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to provide independent, objective analysis and advice to the nation and conduct other activities to solve complex problems and inform public policy decisions. The National Academies also encourage education and research, recognize outstanding contributions to knowledge, and increase public understanding in matters of science, engineering, and medicine. Learn more about the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine at www.national-academies.org. The Transportation Research Board is one of seven major programs of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The mission of the Transportation Research Board is to increase the benefits that transportation contributes to society by providing leadership in transportation innovation and progress through research and information exchange, conducted within a setting that is objective, interdisciplinary, and multimodal. The Boardâs varied committees, task forces, and panels annually engage about 7,000 engineers, scientists, and other transportation researchers and practitioners from the public and private sectors and academia, all of whom contribute their expertise in the public interest. The program is supported by state transportation departments, federal agencies including the component administrations of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other organizations and individuals interested in the development of transportation.

iv AUTHOR ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The research conducted for Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Project H-52 was performed by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) with assistance from Kittelson & Associates, Inc. and Kathryn Coffel Consulting, LLC. Linda Cherrington of TTI was the principal investigator for the project. TTI researchers Zachary Elgart and Jonathan Brooks assisted with the research and data collection for the state-of-the- practice scan, and Todd Hansen prepared the literature review. Jonathan Brooks led the research to investigate demand estimation models for park-and-ride planning. Jonathan Brooks, James Cardenas, Zachary Elgart, David Galicia, Todd Hansen, Kristi Miller, and Michael Walk of TTI; Paul Ryus and Conor Semler of Kittelson, Inc.; and Kathryn Coffel of Kathryn Coffel Consulting, LLC conducted the case study research for the transit agencies participating in the project. Jonathan Brooks, James Cardenas, Kathryn Coffel, Zachary Elgart, Paul Ryus, Conor Semler, and Michael Walk contributed content for the guidebook. Paul Ryus prepared the executive summary for the guidebook. Kathryn Coffel was the author for Part 1 of the web-only document. Michelle Benoit of TTI provided copy writing and editing for the guidebook, and Lisa Patke of TTI assisted with the production for Parts 1 and 2 of the web-only document. The research team gratefully acknowledges the assistance and support of the members of the Project Panel, who contributed valuable guidance and input throughout the project, and Dianne Schwager, TCRP senior program officer, for her support for the project throughout the study process. We would also like to thank the representative of many transit agencies that participated in the research project for sharing their data, insights, and time with the research team.
v ABSTRACT The objective of TCRP H-52 â Decision-Making Toolbox to Plan and Manage Park-and-Ride Facilities for Public Transportation is to develop a guidebook to better plan and manage park- and-ride facilities for public transportation. TCRP Web-Only Document 69 presents valuable information gathered in the development of A Guidebook for Planning and Managing Park-and-Ride Facilities. This web-only document summarizes the technical research and presents the in-depth park-and-ride case studies. TCRP Web-Only Document 69 is in two parts. Part 1 summarizes the research findings and Part 2 documents 16 case studies. Part 1 includes findings from the literature review, documents a state-of-the-practice scan and park-and-ride inventory, discusses how transit agencies model demand for park and-ride facilities, and summarizes a review of demand estimation models. Part 1 also describes the case study research methodology, and outlines the guidebook developed using case study findings. Part 2 documents 16 case studies to provide in-depth discussion of the experiences and best practices for the park-and-ride facilities. Case study findings may contain information of interest to other transit agencies that operate park-and-ride facilities or are considering developing new facilities.
