Park & Ride Strategy for the Turku Region
Parking Perspectives provided specialist advice to develop the rationale and the options available for the park and ride concepts. A key part of this process has been to set out delivery options and different forms of park and ride other than solely an edge of town dedicated bus-based model.
A Methodological Approach
The work included gathering examples of alternative models of delivery in the UK and creating generic park and ride models for consideration for the region. These included examination of the methods of access to the park and ride and the attractiveness of it as an option to other travel modes.
Considerations of financial viability to maintain systems drew on the UK experiences. The suitability of options to deliver a good environmental solution were considered as well as setting out which models best serve other objectives for the municipalities, including improving the access by cycle.
Discussion Paper and Workshop
Initial examination work was formulated into a discussion paper with the client and then further strategies for generating the right cohesion between stakeholders in preparation for a workshop held in Turku.
