The Price of Free Parking: A Conversation With Urban Planning Expert Donald Shoup

UCLA Urban Planning Professor, Donald Shoup, advocates for a different way to view parking the cars we drive. While he freely admits that nobody likes to pay for parking, he feels strongly that the cost of parking is embedded in our lifestyle and that abundant free parking comes with a very dear price. This week on Sea Change Radio, Alex Wise speaks with Donald Shoup, parking policy authority and author of The High Cost of Free Parking. They discuss the environmental impact of free parking and Shoup offers a rational for revising traditional approaches to urban planning.
