Pay-Per-Use Automobile Services

Encourage pay-per-use automobile services, such as taxis or ride hailing services that do not require parking.


Remove parking spaces from curb space that may be better served by a pick-up and drop-off zone. Well placed drop-off and pick-up zones facilitate more trips than a typical parking space.

  • Reduce vehicle ownership, increase in transit mode share, and increase denser residential and employment areas by supporting ride hail services, and other on-demand services.
  • Subsidize ride hailing for certain occasions or locations where parking supply is scarce.
