The University of Hawai’i at Manoa was slowly being crippled by Honolulu’s growing congestion and steady demand for campus access and parking. The University was not in a financial position to build more parking to accommodate single occupant vehicle access, and many University affiliates could not afford to own and maintain a private vehicle.
To find an innovative approach to campus access, Nelson\Nygaard developed an actionable package of strategies after gathering input from diverse stakeholders from campus and the city and county of Honolulu. We created a parking demand and revenue model and an interactive Google mapping exercise that captured where access issues and opportunities existed. We provided detailed and phased strategies tailored to the unique strengths and needs of the TDM staff, and established a policy framework that defines a balanced and cost effective approach to campus access. The plan also established a complete benchmark and monitoring plan to allow the University to access progress toward mobility and sustainability goals.
