Sammendrag

Park and ride as a mobility measure has been debated. On the one hand, this provides an opportunity to use public transport (PT), even for those living far from a PT service. On the other hand, it becomes much easier to use a car on parts of a trip that one would otherwise conduct by foot, bicycle or PT. In this report, we investigate whether parking fees contribute to a change in the use of parking spaces at fifteen railway stations in Norway. The results show that fees have a clearly dismissive effect and that the demand for parking goes down in most cases. At the same time, the fee has not led to a change in the influence area of the parking lots. The usage pattern and the distance users travel are unchanged.
