This study, sponsored by the City Manager's Executive Office of Economic Development, analyzed parking and transportation issues in downtown Worcester. The goal was to evaluate the attitudes of people toward parking and transportation in the city's downtown area and to develop recommendations for possible solutions. A survey was used to gather data on current behaviors and attitudes of residents and business people of the downtown district. It was determined that supply of parking spaces is sufficient, but problems exists such as cost, distance to desired location and convenience. Upon completion recommendations were made for the City Manager's Executive Office of Economic Development.
