Current Parking Conditions

On-Street Parking Spaces

Off-Street Parking Garages

  • 6 major garages

2 – Public

3 – Private

1 – University

  • Total Spaces: 1,688
  • Rates: $1.00-$2.50/hour
  • 1,394 Total On-Street Parking Spaces
  • 926 metered spaces - $1.00/hour

12% are 1/2 hour

46% are 1 hour

26% are 90 minute

16% are 2-hour

  • 428 un-metered spaces (2 hours without permit)

Occupancy Rates (On-Street Parking and Garages)

On-Street Parking Occupancy

Weekday Average Occupancy Rate

  • 76 % during meter hours
  • 91 % during evening hours

Saturday Average Occupancy Rate on Selected 59 Blocks

  • 78 % during meter hours
  • 91 % during evening hours

Current Street Parking Revenue (Estimates)

$1,303,380 per year

-- Based on the surveyed occupancy rate (59%) that excludes vehicles with disabled placards

Off-Street Parking Garages Occupancy

Weekday Garage Occupancy Rate

Weekend (Saturday) Garage Occupancy Rate

  • Weekday midday usage highest
  • Weekend usage light
  • The usage of University Hall Garage is too low.
  • Kittredge Garage manager mentions one issue is not being allowed to post signs to the Garage on major streets (mainly Shattuck).
  • Promenade Garage is similarly difficult to find, especially without prior knowledge.

Turnover Study: Average Stay

  • Metered Spaces:
  • Meter feeding from downtown employees and visitors
  • Small percentage of drivers violate time limit
  • 7.6% cars with handicapped placard, with an average stay of 3.7 hours
  • Cluster in the northwest part of downtown Berkeley, near civic buildings and Alta Bates Medical Center on Dwight Way
  • Only 16 handicapped placard cars in Unmetered spaces compare to 414 cars in metered spaces
  • Most clustered between University Ave and Addison Street
  • Most shops and restaurants around University Ave
  • Unmetered Spaces:
  • Average stay is significantly higher than metered spaces due to RPPs
  • 1.1% cars with handicapped placard, with an average stay of 3.1 hours

Total Parking Spillover in Downtown Berkeley

  • Total of 350 parking spots in the surveyed residential areas
  • Higher number of permitted cars at night than midday
  • Higher number of unpermitted cars on weekend than weekday

Parking Spillover on East Side of Fulton – Most Extreme Case

  • Total of 10 parking spaces on East side of Fulton
  • The most extreme spillover case: highest shift between permitted and unpermitted cars during different times of day
  • Data might be skewed due to spillover from UC Berkeley

Introduction

Maintain supply of parking in residential areas for residents

Residential

Reduce

traffic impacts of future downtown development

Insure parking availability within the core of downtown

Encourage the

Perspective

Business

Perspective

  • This studio has accomplished several tasks towards the goal of developing a parking management strategy for Berkeley’s downtown
  • Engaged in a variety of data collection and analyses to ascertain current parking conditions in the downtown
  • Surveyed the Berkeley public about parking downtown and potential improvements in the area
  • Identified a series of parking related challenges and opportunities that could be addressed through a parking management strategy
  • Assembled a cost effective, phased parking management strategy for Downtown Berkeley that addresses various issues and opportunities
  • Estimated the revenue impacts of proposed parking management strategy and provided an expenditure plan funding a variety of targeted improvements in the downtown

Reduce congestion related to cruising / circling for parking

Maintain or

reduce number of parking facilities in

downtown

Increase total trips to

downtown

Increase parking facilities in downtown

Reduce vehicle

trips to and within downtown

Identify concerns and opportunities

Formulate a parking management strategy

Estimate revenue outcome and suggest potential expenditures

Framing Parking

Beyond addressing the individual parking needs of different downtown visitors, a successful parking management strategy should be crafted in a way that frames parking in terms of a broader economic, environmental, and social context.

  • Venn diagram to the left presents three distinct hypothetical “paradigms” for thinking about parking and the associated outcomes and policies each might support.
  • The way parking is framed informs what kinds of policy and management approaches may be appropriate
  • While different parking “paradigms” may be oriented towards differing goals, they may also have common objectives and preferred outcomes
  • Focusing on these areas of agreement provides the entry point for crafting a parking management strategy that will be acceptable to many different groups and interests

Proposed Parking Management Strategy

  • Phase 1a
  • Objective: to generate increased revenue and begin management of high-demand parking locations
  • Actions:
  • Daytime downtown-wide meter rate increase
    • $1.50 – existing standard meterheads
    • $2.00 – existing Pay & Display spaces
  • Evening hours  existing Pay & Display
    • Meter hour extension  6 PM – 12 AM
    • Elimination of time limits after 6 PM
    • $1.00
  • Educational campaign
  • Evening hour parking enforcement
  • Garage parking signage for all downtown garages
  • Revenue Estimation:
  • Revenue for this phase was estimated based on the occupancy studies conducted. An elasticity of -0.1 was assumed for fare increases. This means that a 100% fare increase will results in a 10% decrease in occupancy.
  • Phase 2
  • Objective: to parking management capabilities to the entire downtown
  • Actions:
  • Convert all standard meterheads to Pay & Display
  • All daytime fares: $1.50
  • Lollipop fare: $2.00
  • All evening fares: $1.00
  • Phase 1b
  • Objective: to extend parking management capabilities in the highest-demand locations and redistribute parking demand to underutilized spaces
  • Actions:
  • High occupancy “lollipop corridor”
    • Replace all standard meterheads within the corridor with Pay & Display meters
    • Daytime rate: $2.00
    • Evening rate: $1.00
      • 6 PM – 12 AM
      • No evening time limits
    • Revenue Estimation:

Lots of empty space? Fill it with future parking managementstrategies??
