It has an impact on transport development. The availability of less space in urban areas has increased demand for parking space especially in central business area. This affects the mode choice also. This has a great economic impact. In order to accommodate the large volume of vehicle, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation must develop their infrastructures – roads, flyovers, car parks and other facilities. Otherwise their arteries are most likely to get clogged like it happens in big and mini metros. The solution for this is systemic survey and management of traffic and pedestrian, although at a nascent stage in India, it the one of the options to decongest roads and solve parking and pedestrian problems. Before taking any measures for betterment of conditioned, data regarding availability of parking space, extent of it usage and parking surveys are intended to all these information. Since the duration of parking varies with different vehicles, the data has to be analyzed to access the parking need. As the traffic on the existing road system in the cities increases, congestion becomes serious problem.
