Abstract:

The effect was studied of inadequate parking on shifts in retail activity and the degree to which availability of ample parking facilities is a major asset to business. The problem was not found susceptible to the principals of precise mathematical formulae. Comparative analysis was made of downtown shopping centers and suburban shopping centers with regard to trends in the geographic and functional distribution of businesses as related to the relative availability of transportation and parking facilities. It is shown that there was a marked change in shopping habits accompanied by the spectacular growth of automobile use. The shift from public transit to private cars has had a substantial effect upon retail activities downtown.
