Comprehensive parking space analysis of P+R facilities in the greater Nuremberg area network (VGN)
In order to boost the intended transformation of traffic behaviour, it is critical to facilitate the shift from motorised private transport to public transport and to link the various means of transport in central places. P+R facilities play a major role as the hub between private and public transport. According to the information that is currently available, no reliable forcasts regarding the utilisation of individual P+R facilities can be made for specific times. For this reason, PB CONSULT was commissioned to perform a comprehensive parking space analysis of these facilities. The commissioned parking space survey is aimed at obtaining reliable information on the utilisation levels of the individual P+R facilities along the VGN network (suburban and regional train lines). The information obtained is planned to be made available to motorists in real-time using forecasting procedures. Within the VGN area, P+R parking space for more than 10,000 vehicles is available to encourage the shift from the car to public transport. The 56 P+R facilities to be surveyed are located in the city area of Nuremberg and, within a radius of 20 km, the city areas of the adjoining cities of Erlangen, Fürth, Schwabach and the neigbouring districts of Roth, Fürth, Erlangen-Höchstadt and Nürnberger Land.
