Curbside Parking Time Limits

Abstract

This paper investigates the economics of curbside parking time limits. It argues that curbside parking time limits provide a way to subsidize short-term parking without generating cruising for parking. The paper develops the argument in the context of the integrated model of downtown parking and traffic congestion presented in Arnott and Rowse (2009), extended to incorporate heterogeneity in value of time and parking duration.
