STEP 3: Select Appropriate Measures

In considering the choice of parking measures, cities should consider their current stage of development and level of parking control. Most Indian medium sized cities are at an early stage of development of parking regulations, infrastructure, and enforcement. The initial stage would therefore be to organize parking prohibitions and allocate parking areas, rather than pursuing advanced solutions. Such a parking scheme may complement the proposal or introduction of a mass transit scheme to ensure that public transport is encouraged over private modes and that access is suitably provided.

The figure below outlines the typical stages in the development or evolution of city parking controls. Most Indian medium sized cities have reached level 1 or 2.
