Parking policy in Asian cities

This new ADB report provides a comparative perspective on Asian parking policy trajectories by compiling a rich set of information on key aspects of parking supply policy in 14 Asian cities and by presenting results of parking behavior surveys from 12 of them.



Most Asian cities are facing an acute parking crisis as a result of rapid urbanization and motorization, and high urban densities. Parking policy is an important component of a holistic approach to sustainable urban transport across the region. The report provides an international comparative perspective on parking policy in Asian cities, while highlighting the nature of the policy choices available. It is a step in building a knowledge base to address the knowledge gap on parking and the lack of adequate guidance for parking policy in Asia.
