The High Cost of Free Parking

August 18, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, ONLINE

Since World War II, American cities have been built for cars, with garages and pavement dominating the landscape. Donald Shoup has spent his career arguing that it doesn’t have to be this way. His research demonstrates that simple fixes to parking policies—like charging fair market prices for on-street parking and removing off-street parking requirements—can reduce housing costs, bolster public transportation, decrease carbon output, advance social justice, and generally make cities better places to live and work. Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Urban Planning at UCLA, Shoup is a world-renown authority on transportation, public finance, and land economics. He is the author of the landmark book, The High Cost of Free Parking, and the follow-up collaboration, Parking and the City.
