Donald Shoup is the world’s foremost authority on parking – often called a parking rock star. Shoup is an expert on the ways that wrongheaded parking policies shape cities, making them inhospitable to pedestrians, cyclists, transit-riders, and even drivers. Streetsblog interviewed Shoup in 2015 – read part 1 and part 2.

Parking and the City follows on Shoup’s influential book The High Cost of Free Parking, with extensive reports on successful on-the-ground progress that cities are making to reform parking, and thereby improve the quality of life, the environment, and the urban fabric. Shoup has long recommended three key parking reforms: (1) remove off-street parking requirements, (2) charge the right price for on-street parking, and (3) spend parking meter revenue to improve metered streets. Parking and the City tells how these reforms have played out around the world. Reading Shoup will change the way you see the city.
