Encourage or require employers that provide free parking to their employees to institute a parking cash out program that allows employees to take cash in lieu of the parking benefit.
Parking, especially in garages, is expensive to build, and people who use alternative transportation should receive a benefit equal to the cost of providing parking. This policy will reduce vehicle trips by encouraging people to carpool, take transit, bike, or walk to work.
