The Follo region south of Oslo consists of seven municipalities. These municipalities want to achieve a better coordination of their parking policies which again is related to land use and public transport services. Many residents commute to Oslo by ferry, train or bus. Four of the communities have a centrally located railroad station. This means that large areas are used for Park and Ride. The report describes several parking measures which can be used in order to create attractive central areas. The communities should introduce restrictive measures such as restrictive parking norm (maximum norm), moving parking out of the center and remove free parking. P&R spaces in central areas should be underground and priced in order to reduce demand from person who live close by or reach the station by other means than a car (walk, bicycle, local bus).
