The Design and Conduct of Park and Visit and Vehicle Following Surveys.

By A.D. May and I.G. Turvey


The report assesses the -development and potential of two individual survey techniques; the Park and Visit and the Vehicle Following surveys. The Park and Visit Survey has its origins in work conducted by Inwood for TRRL in 1966 and is primarily concerned with ease of access effects in terms of search and search plus walk times, when Looking for a parking space. The Vehicle Following surveys, used extensively hy Wright (1975), relate to the degree of searching and hence more directly to the route choice and congestion related effects of parking in city centres. Both surveys can be budgeted at a fairly Low cost and involve the use of small survey teams, over a short period of time. Yet each survey is robust in nature and yields information of a behavioural nature largely omitted from conventional parking usage data collection
