This synthesis documents transit agency parking policies and parking management at transit stations using three primary resources: a scan of current research on transit-supportive parking policies, an original survey distributed to a sample of transit agencies, and several brief agency profiles based on interviews and existing available data. The survey was distributed to 46 transit agencies of which 37 (80%) responded. Participating transit agencies represent a broad spectrum of service type, jurisdiction, ridership, mode, types of parking, and parking policy.
