A Guide to Parking

IPMI’s mission to advance the parking profession manifests in a number of ways – through top-notch education, certification and accreditation, and connecting our community through the conference and expo and now online through Forum.    Publications are another hallmark program of our organization; take a look through this magazine and the reader must recognize the complexity, depth, and variety in our industry. It has been oft lamented by many a parking professional that there is no ‘textbook’ for our industry – until now.

Simply titled, A Guide to Parking provides information on the current state of parking, providing professionals and students with an overview on major areas of parking and the transportation and mobility industry, punctuated by brief program examples. More than 30 of our subject matter experts (and dedicated volunteers) contributed chapters on their specific area of expertise for a comprehensive volume about parking.

  • A Guide to Parking approaches the industry from a broad perspective, first providing an overview of the industry, the various frameworks that parking relates to, and then more specific aspects of the industry.
  • Developed for professionals new to the field and managers for use in orientation and refresher training, and graduate-level students focusing on areas of study that are impacted by the parking industry: planning, engineering, architecture, real estate, transportation programs, and more.
