Residential parking in vibrant city districts

  • Molenda, Inga
  • Sieg, Gernot

Living downtown can be advantageous because it enables convenient access to a variety of shopping and leisure activities, but a major disadvantage is the difficulty of finding a parking spot. We formally model the trade-off between privileged parking for residents and economic vitality in terms of the product variety available in a vibrant city district and identify situations in which assigning on-street parking spaces to residential parking constitutes an optimal policy, both from a welfare and a resident perspective. However, we demonstrate that privileged parking for residents is unlikely to result in a first-best allocation of on-street parking spaces, if an efficient level of economic vitality is to be ensured at the same time.
