A Wallet-Friendly Approach to Demand-Responsive Pricing

Parking Pricing_620

In the article How Seattle Transformed Parking Without Spending a Fortune, author Eric Jaffe discusses demand-responsive pricing, an approach that allows a city to adjust the rates of street meters and garages based on anticipated demand. Most notably, San Francisco’s SFpark program has served as a sophisticated poster child for demand-responsive pricing, using a matrix of street sensors to adjust prices and inform drivers of space vacancy in real time.

Pierce County Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan

Pierce Plan

Client:

Pierce County, WA


Owner:

Pierce County, WA


Location:

Tacoma, WA

Transpo worked with Pierce County and the Pierce County Coordinated Transportation Coalition (PCCTC) to update the 2007 Coordinated Transportation Plan, which addressed federal planning requirements. A critical goal in developing this plan was providing a forum for citizen and transit user input. Transpo worked alongside Pierce County staff and assisted at community meetings. The plan was focused on increasing ride service for targeted populations, simplifying access to transportation, and improving customer satisfaction. Transpo used GIS to analyze social demographics within the study area. Our research resulted in recommending increased funding for special needs transportation, grouping trips and sharing costs, providing transportation services for senior citizens, and changes in program policies.
