Abstract

With the construction of the P&R facilities, people who used to have to travel by bus or taking bus from the residential area to the nearest railway station before taking to the city center, which can be named as bus-and-ride, will change their travel mode to P&R. However, this evidence will lead to a result which city planners and bus companies would not like to face: the utilization of bus will decrease; market sharing of public transportation in branch area of the city will be occupied by P&R facilities1). This could make the operation of bus companies to a plight of collapse. It will turn to a big problem for the residents who cannot drive. This study used a hypothetical city to study the means of commuting traffic and analyzes the changes that have occurred since the introduction of P&R, by changing the parking price and the parking lot location, provided a proper P&R facility siting and pricing plan which will attract car drivers to change their travel mode to public transportation, at the same time, the P&R facility will not or have little effect on bus running in its sphere of influence.
