Donald Shoup to present annual VTC Distinguished Lecture, October 1

September 10, 2015

Donald Shoup, Distinguished Research Professor of Urban Planning at the University of California, Los Angeles will present the 2015 Alan M. Voorhees Distinguished Lecture, “The High Cost of Free Parking,” on Thursday, October 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the Special Events Forum, Civic Square Building, 33 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT. Please visit http://ejb.adobeconnect.com/forum/ on the day of the event to watch the live stream.

The event is sponsored by the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and is free and open to the public.

Dr. Shoup’s research has focused on how parking policies affect cities, the economy, and the environment. His research on employer-paid parking led to the passage of California’s parking cash-out law, and to changes in the Internal Revenue Code to encourage parking cash out. In his book, The High Cost of Free Parking, Dr. Shoup recommends that cities should charge fair market prices for on-street parking, use the meter revenue to finance added public services in the metered neighborhoods, and remove off-street parking requirements.

Dr. Shoup is a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners, an Honorary Professor at the Beijing Transportation Research Center, and the Editor of ACCESS. In 2015, the American Planning Association gave Dr. Shoup its highest honor, the National Excellence Award for a Planning Pioneer.

A short reception will precede the lecture at 5:00 p.m.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT. Please visit http://ejb.adobeconnect.com/forum/ on the day of the event to watch the live stream.

AICP Certification Maintenance credits are pending for this event.
