Portions of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) State Park & Ride Lot Program Planning Manual, first published in 1989 and revised in 1996, were updated. The scope included examination, testing, and updating, as necessary, the planning formulas related to site selection (chapter 3), demand and facility size estimation (chapter 4), and economic analysis and project justification (chapter 6). Examples were developed and included to show users how to work their way through the formulas. The overall objective was to make the manual more "user-friendly."
