Abstract [en]

In the past decades car use and car ownership has increased significantly. This has caused problems of traffic congestion, air pollution and noise disturbance. Creating an attractive society that is socially, economically and ecologically sustainable has consequently become more important in planning. By implementing parking policies the amount of parking spaces can be controlled. This can affect the traveling patterns and the choice of transport mode, which furthermore can contribute to sustainable mobility. For that reason the aim of this study is to illustrate how three municipalities in Sweden work with parking strategies and if or how these strategies contribute to sustainable mobility.

By studying parking documents and complementing interviews through thematic analyse in Västerås, Luleå and Umeå, parking strategies are identified. Furthermore the identified strategies are categorised by Banisters (2008) theories of sustainable mobility to determine which strategies that can contribute to sustainable mobility. A literature study is also made to get an overview of the knowledge within the subject regarding parking strategies.

The result shows that the studied municipalities work with several parking strategies that contribute to sustainable mobility, although the municipalities are recommended to work further with strategies that relates to technical development and increased public awareness. Themes that are identified within the data are; sustainable transport, parking-fee, and time-regulation, lower amount of car parks and effectivization. Furthermore the result demonstrates several parking strategies within the themes, which shows some similarities and some differences from each other, depending on the municipality.
