Performance Parking

In this radio interview, KQED-FM reporter Kitty Felde interviews UCLA professor and parking guru Don Shoup on what he now calls "performance parking", a form of smart parking that includes congestion pricing used in D.C., SF, and soon LA.

Also interviewed is a D.C. councilman who describes what's smart about the meters (they can be programed for different prices), but he quips, "Messing with parking is one of the most difficult things to do". He might check out how Sausalito deals with this issue. However, the biggest problem encountered to date in D.C. with the smart meters is decidedly low-tech.
