Abstract

Transportation system management is one of the most important and current need for solving urban travel problems. The possibility of reducing congestion by managing within the existing system is the need of the hour. One of such management technique is the provision of Park and Ride facility. The present study identifies the different Park and Ride facilities implemented around the world in general and looks at provision of Suburban Park and Ride facility in particular. The proposed site is located along the boundary the Bangalore metropolitan area. Traffic surveys were carried out to know about the traffic and travel characteristics. Detailed analysis was carried out to arrive at the possible travel demand and capacity of the Park and Ride facility. Opinion survey was carried out to evaluate the willingness of commuters to use the facility and amount of fare to be collected. The resulting mode shift was estimated. The cost of construction and revenue generated with the facility is also calculated. The results indicate that there will be 34% reduction in private vehicles travelling to the CBD area from the proposed site.
