Neighborhood Parking Survey

| Neighborhood Transportation and Parking Survey |
As part of an on-going research project, last fall, the SFMTA Curb Management Group conducted interviews with you and other property managers in the South of Market, Mission Bay and Dogpatch neighborhoods to obtain information about onsite parking at your facility. Thank you again for helping us gather this important information.
The next phase of the project is to survey neighborhood residents and this summer, the SFMTA will be mailing a short survey to residents in your buildings. The purpose of the survey is to gather information about residents’ typical travel and parking patterns. This information will help the SFMTA better prepare for future demand on the transportation system due to population and job growth. Below and attached, is a description of the study we are conducting and its purpose. If you have any questions about the study or the survey, please contact Kathie Studwell, program manager, at 415-701-5708 or Kathryn.Studwell@sfmta.com.
By 2040, the City of San Francisco’s population will increase by nearly 100,000 people. Much of this growth will occur in the City’s eastern neigh
orhoods: South of Market, Mission Bay and Dogpatch. To prepare for anticipated impacts on the City’s transportation system, the SFMTA’s Parking and Curb Management Group has embarked on a study of residents’ travel and parking patterns.
Most of the anticipated growth will be in the form of large, mixed-use buildings (residential + commercial). The SFMTA will be surveying residents currently living in multi-family buildings similar to those planned or under construction. The survey results will generate information about residents’ travel modes (transit, car share, walk, bike, etc.), vehicle ownership, and vehicle parking. Responses to the survey will help SFMTA estimate the future demand for transportation infrastructure, such as car-share services, bike lanes, on-street parking and pedestrian loading zones generated by population and job growth.
In addition, the SFMTA would like to better understand whether parking availability in residential areas affects ownership and use of personal vehicles. Towards that end, the survey will provide information that could assist the SFMTA in determining the best approach to implementing best practices in parking management in areas impacted by significant new housing development.
Results of the survey will be posted on the project website in late summer or fall.
