IMPROVING MOBILITY TO AND AROUND BUSINESS DISTRICTS

Looking for parking accounts for about 30% of congestion, but parking minimums can spread out urban landscapes, making them less walkable. Traditional circulator and trolley options may not draw enough demand relative to their capacity – while some transit routes are overused. TNCs do not contribute to living-wage jobs to communities, and they take riders away from transit.
