On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Michael Schaffer
Street parking is at a premium in the heart of the cities like Washington, and D.C. officials are about to pilot a new strategy for managing that scarcity: charge higher rates, as high as $8 an hour, during the busiest hours of the day. Some fear that raising prices will drive shoppers and diners away from downtown, while others advocate for even “smarter” pricing that changes in real-time according to demand. We talk with experts on how to best handle one of the city’s scarcest resources.
- Donald Shoup Professor of Urban Planning, UCLA; and author of "The High Cost of Free Parking" (American Planning Association)
