Competing for the Curb - Can On-street Parking Management Survive?


Competition for curb space requires new approaches to on-street parking management. ! In recent years, the planners find ourselves competing with TNCs, bicycles, delivery trucks, parklets, scooters, and pop-ups. Many planners view “storing cars on the street” as the lowest priority for the curb space. In this presentation, I will sort out the competitive uses for the curb and discuss how we can develop policies to manage the curb effectively. Bring your thinking cap!


  • Define competition for curb space.
  • Develop criteria to evaluate alternative uses of the curb.
  • Develop strategies for resolving conflicting priorities for the curb.
