Abstract

This paper reports the findings of an evaluation study of the introduction of paid parking at a district shopping center. Using an Internet based questionnaire, residents were asked to describe their travel and shopping behavior before and after the introduction of paid parking. It appears that residents’ travel and shopping behavior changed considerably, at least in the short run. The relation between the change in expenditures and visit duration, visit frequency, visiting day, and mode choice is investigated by means of two structural equation models, one for weekly and one for non-weekly purchases. The models also include some personal characteristics of the respondents. The change in expenditures for weekly purchases is significantly related to changes in visit frequency, visit duration, travel mode, gender, and car availability. Regarding non-weekly purchases, the change in expenditures is significantly related to changes in visit frequency, visit duration, and visiting day.
