Abstract

Aim of the work is to propose a methodology to investigate the space-time relations between public services and individual mobility, checking the space-time efficiency of the allocation of public and private parking areas. Urban mobility, that is an indispensable form of individual autonomy, most often results in the indiscriminate use of private car (Bertolini and Clercq, 2003), definitely for their comfort as well as they are perceived as a “status symbol”. Nevertheless, mobility is a battleground between individual needs and public goods (Tira, 2001). So, urban planning – focused on the resolution of conflicts between private and public -, treats the issue of mobility also in terms of accessibility to (public) services and from the point of view of sustainable development. Mobility policies must include a set of provisions designed to encourage citizens to use alternative transport means (Busi and Tiboni, 2003), instead of cars, in order to decrease the impact to the environment and the economic system. Accessibility to services is a part of the main objectives of sustainable mobility, that can be achieved both through the best location of public services and the highest possibilities to reach them. If the location can be influenced by the planning policy designed in the Municipal Town Plan (containing, for example, the requirements for the containment of soil consumption and the features to assess the proximity to existing settlements), accessibility should first refer to specific means of transport, designed to reach the service (Bonotti et al., 2012). Therefore, the knowledge of demand and supply of parking areas can be an indirect mean for to know the supply of the available means of transport: the highest being the accessibility by public transport, the least should be the car park filling rate.
