Our company culture supports staff experts passionate about delivering answers to complex parking challenges. We provide the time and funding for these experts to analyze new data, publish research, and participate in nationally relevant activities.

As part of our internally funded research and development program, we develop our own state-of-the-art parking analysis tools addressing the following: optimization (cost/benefit), pricing, physical layout, and curb space management.

The Parking Discipline Group within our firm develops and implements plans for training, tool development, research, and publishing. Consisting of members from every office, this innovative group continually advances our own parking practice and the industry as a whole.

We approach parking scenarios differently by focusing on dedicated experts, demonstrated experience in a wide variety of areas, cutting-edge research and development, and application to local conditions. By pairing data analysis with easy-to-interpret visuals, we tell the story of parking in a community and provide plans balancing efficiency, safety, and access.

We empower our team of dedicated parking experts.

Fehr & Peers commits to excelling at what we do by heavily investing in our culture to ensure we attract and retain the best staff of parking professionals in the industry. Our team members are frequently sought after to conduct analysis projects, prepare training materials, peer review the work of others, and provide presentations to industry professionals, stakeholder groups, and decision-makers. Our experts hold professional engineering licenses across more than 20 states and are committed to continually advancing our services and solutions through the collaborative and forward-thinking Parking Discipline Group.

We invest in our own research and development for advanced solutions.

Our robust, internally funded research and development program enables us to develop new analytical methods and advance the state of the practice in parking design and planning. We create our own innovative parking tools to analyze the effects of parking pricing on demand and revenue, explore optimized curb space requirements, and examine the financial effects of shared parking and transportation demand management strategies on parking supply costs for proposed developments. Not only do we apply our findings and tools for our clients, but we also share them through publications, conference presentations, and training materials as leaders in the industry.

We draw from diverse experience and customize to local contexts.

With extensive parking expertise applied across the country for projects of all scales and complexities, we offer the advantages of local knowledge and experience across nine different divisions of the parking discipline. From our nation’s beautiful national parks and high-profile stadiums to parking complications and needs for small communities, we’ve partnered with clients to deliver on their needs. Our strategies build on our prior experience while also incorporating the latest research, insights from our internally funded research and development efforts, and the local context. With client satisfaction as our priority, we frequently develop long-term relationships with our parking clients.

Parking Access, Circulation, & Conceptual Design

Our experts have excelled on hundreds of sophisticated parking studies for a variety of projects and clients, including large shopping centers, mixed-use developments (MXDs), transit-oriented developments (TODs), corporate and educational campuses, downtown districts, and citywide parking plans. We know that a high-quality and low-stress access and circulation plan can go a long way in minimizing vehicle/pedestrian conflict, enhancing safety in the parking facilities, and delivering an exceptional user experience.

Outdoor Recreation Parking

We serve as a national leader in parking studies at parks, trails, resorts, and gateway communities by combining our core competencies of innovation, solid data, and careful analysis with leadership in facilitation and strategy. Our experience in these treasured areas and our passion for helping the outdoor recreation areas is unmatched.

Parking Demand & Supply

Our team has prepared hundreds of parking studies, partnering with public, private, and institutional clients throughout the western United States. We frequently perform parking supply evaluations, demand analysis, access and circulation analysis, special event plans, and many other evaluations. In working with land use planning, urban design, and economic forecasting firms, we integrate parking as a critical component of urban center planning. As part of these efforts, we analyze how parking demand can be met through shared parking, maximum requirements, and parking management strategies.

Parking Design

The integration of planning and engineering for parking facilities is an area in which our parking planners and engineers excel. Not only do we advise clients on ways to reduce parking demand and accurately estimate needs; we also prepare conceptual and detailed designs. These services include optimization and layout, code compliance and ADA considerations, visibility/sight distance analysis, signing/striping/lighting plans, wayfinding signage design, accommodations for Uber/Lyft pick-ups, and cost estimations for parking improvements.

Parking Management

Fehr & Peers has helped hundreds of communities across the nation better manage their limited parking resources. Our projects range in size from a single private development all the way to regional park-and-ride facilities across large transit districts. Our experts provide efficient management strategies across a wide range of parking types: on-street parking, off-street surface lots, large parking structures, and more.

Parking Structures

We have supported hundreds of private, institutional, and public clients in planning and designing parking facilities that produce optimum parking yields, meet local agency parking design and municipal code standards, accommodate peak queuing and inbound/outbound vehicular traffic, and provide flexibility in adapting to possible disruptive transportation trends.

Special Event & Large Venue Parking

When it comes to experience working on major event venues, Fehr & Peers is among the most experienced transportation consultants in the industry. We have worked on hundreds of projects across the US, including high-profile projects such as the Climate Pledge Arena (NHL Kraken) in Seattle, Golden 1 Center (NBA Kings) in Sacramento, Dodger Stadium (MLB Dodgers) in Los Angeles, and State Farm Stadium (NFL Cardinals) in Arizona. From the very first arrival all the way to the last person exiting the parking facilities, we can support your team with many decisions related to planning, design, and day-to-day operations of the parking facilities.

Shared Parking

Our advantages in conducting shared parking analysis are based on our understanding and expertise with the Urban Land Institute/National Parking Association’s 2020 Shared Parking spreadsheet. Fehr & Peers staff have contributed to the development of shared parking principles by reviewing parking data, developing shared parking tools, and educating developers and cities about the benefits of shared parking. Furthermore, our staff have prepared training materials and developed guidelines for agencies to use when reviewing shared parking studies from other professionals.

Campus Parking

By its nature, a campus (medical, office, education) has some of the greatest fluctuations in daily parking demand, with a user base that is cognizant of price, convenience, and familiarity. This demands an approach that is context-sensitive and nuanced, so we employ a very customized approach to our campus parking work.
