1. Market potential
The aim of this work package is to answer in what way market prices of parking for tenants affects which mobility services that inhabitants demands in central areas and further away from the centre (mostly by shared car ownership / car pools). Within the work package a study is being conducted on driving range data for cars in Stockholm and a mapping of parking in housing cooperatives.
The work package searches, through analyses and data handling, for answers to how many houses that can be built with adaptive parking requirements, the statistic potential. How big is the market in the city of Stockholm for this type of solutions if the rules of the game for planning of parking at construction and remodelling of houses changes?
According to the UN there will be 3 billion more people living in cities by 2050. Many cities will become denser, with increased congestion and competition for the available space as a consequence. Thereby there are strong economic reasons to organise and handle parking according to the principle of adaptive parking requirements. The international market check we have done shows these types of economical incentives for adaptive parking requirements.
Today around half of the apartment households in Stockholm have their own car. With the younger inhabitants in large cities owning a car does not increase social status or self-esteem. Car ownership is often experienced as verbose – even by many that own a car. We mean that new better solutions exist. To create a functioning market for new mobility services, as an alternative to private car ownership, it is crucial to change local rules of the game for planning of parking at new development and remodelling of houses, i.e. according to the plan and building enactment (Plan- och bygglovsstiftningel, PBL).
TUB Trafikutredningsbyrån AB is in charge of this work package, in cooperation with WSP and Trafikkontoret at the City of Stockholm.
