Parking in Downtown New Haven
Beginning in 2003, the City of New Haven began monitoring the supply of and demand for publicly accessible parking in the downtown through a series of "Point-In-Time" surveys, which provide a snapshot of peak weekday parking demand in downtown New Haven. The Point-In-Time survey also counts the pedestrian and bicyclist traffic at key downtown intersections.
