To resume my Parking and TOD series, here is a presentation from my July webinar with Pawan Mulukutla of Embarq India.
I hope you find it thought provoking! It was aimed at an India-based audience but it includes arguments, frameworks and examples that are relevant to every city.
Parking and Transit Oriented Developments (TODs) by Dr. Paul Barter & Mr. Pawan Mulukutla - EMBARQ India from EMBARQ
The slides are a mix of mine and Embarq's. Thanks to the Embarq India team for organizing the webinar (my first!).
If you can't see the Slideshare slideshow above and you want to, please get in touch and I will send you a pdf.

During the webinar we posed these "poll questions" to the audience.
- Should reforms to make real TOD much easier to develop be a high priority for India's cities?
- Improved ON-street parking management is needed to enable reform of OFF-street parking regulations in India’s cities. Do you believe local authorities in India can dramatically improve their management of on-street parking?
- São Paulo’s new master plan eliminates parking minimums citywide and imposes parking maximums within the TOD zone along transit corridors (one space per residential unit). If developers want to build more, they will be charged an extra fee per parking space in excess of the maximum (like a ‘deficiency charge’ in reverse). Would you support such a maximum along with an excess parking fee for TOD zones in India?
- For a place like Ghatkopar TOD Zone, would you support a cap on parking supply? (so that the net number of car parking spaces is fixed at the existing number or less)
