The discussion of reforming parking pricing in Europe and the US suffers from a lack of imagination, as it is hard to envision a city with spatially and temporally strong variance in parking prices within short ranges of distance given the Western historical precedent. This paper is intended to help spark the imagination by presenting the case of downtown Hiroshima, where such a regulatory framework has already been in place for decades. It will map and describe the outcomes for the core of this metropolitan area of just over one million inhabitants. This description is supported by an explanation of the regulatory framework and a chronicle of the development of the number of parking spaces across the country. Parking prices vary by a factor of 25 during daytime hours on weekdays within this 8-km2 area. The highest rates shift location by 1.25 km from daytime to nighttime. Rates fall to zero where there is no demand Show more
