Ground floor living-room parking in Hanoi.
I am busy starting up a very quick 13-city/country study of urban parking policy and outcomes around Asia.
Maybe you can help?
It is an exploratory study aiming to find out what parking issues are important in each place (so that follow-up research can dig deeper). The focus is mainly cars, but other vehicles are relevant too, especially motorcycles. I want to know about off-street parking AND off-street. I am keen to hear about residential parking AND work-based parking AND short-term parking at other places, like shops. A bit ambitious perhaps but I want it all.
The study is also aimed at finding out if any of the major parking policy debates in Western cities are at all relevant anywhere in Asia. Can other places learn from how parking is done in any Asian cities?
So, if you have a view on parking and how it works then please drop a comment below! If you know of great studies or information sources then likewise, please do tell!
I am especially keen to hear tip-offs for parking policy or parking debate or parking phenomena in cities in the following places (since certain cities in each of these places are the case-studies for the project):
- Mainland China
- Hong Kong
- South Korea
- Vietnam, and
- Singapore (where I am based).
