Park and Ride, Parking, Transportation, Transportation Demand Management
This document covers five Park & Ride topics for Chittenden County; 1. Town of Colchester - Park & Ride Lots, 2. Town of Essex - Park & Ride Lots, 3. Town of Essex - Use of Existing Lots for Ridesharers to Burlington, 4. Van Purchase Demonstration Project - Feasibility Study, 5. Regional Intermodal Park & Ride Strategy. Each of these concepts, if implemented and vigorously pursued, would reduce the number of vehicle trips. Each concept requires various amounts of initial public funding as well as ongoing management and maintenance costs. Since the underlying goal is to effect change in commuting style of as large a percentage of the population as possible, efforts should be proportionately focused on those programs which can affect the largest numbers of commuters on a permanent basis.
