Shared autonomous vehicles or ride sharing services stations

The nation's transportation system is changing with the advent shared autonomous vehicles and ride sharing services. Accordingly, traditional parking lot designs, parking needs, and bus stops designs are not equipped to handle these transportation system changes.

The City should allow for a reduction in required parking spaces if a shared autonomous vehicles or ride sharing services station is included in parking lots. The City should accommodate this same approach in its own projects at the Civic Center and Old Town Plaza. A standard detail should be developed for this approach.

The City should allow for on street stations that are either separate or a part of transit bus stops. On street station design would likely need to two designs one for low stress and high stress routes. On high stress routes where vehicle speeds and traffic volume is high more separation may be required from the traveled way. Standard details should be developed for this approach. The City should allow for a reduction in required parking spaces if a shared autonomous vehicles or ride sharing services station is included

Benefits:
A reduction in the amount of parking may allow for a development to occur when it could not previously. Certain business may prefer a being served through shared autonomous vehicles and ride sharing services such as restaurants, bars, and breweries. The City should be seen as providing transportation choice. This provides more flexibility to the community. These services should also provide an air quality improvement as shared autonomous vehicles and ride sharing services often provide services to more than one passenger at a time.
Roll Out:
These changes could occur though a update to the City's municipal code, the creation of City Standard Drawings, and Update to the City Improvement Standards. If budget allows a prototype implementation could occur in select City Capital Projects.
