The Metro Crenshaw/LAX rail-transit line is currently under construction and planned for completion in 2019. The rail-transit line will connect the Metro Expo Line to the Los Angeles Airport. Installation of the project will require road surface space at some segments and as a result, it will run at-grade in the Park Mesa Heights Neighborhood of South Los Angeles. Construction on the commercial Crenshaw Boulevard from 48th Street to Slauson Boulevard requires the removal of over 300 parking spaces. Business owners along the corridor fear that the loss of parking will create barriers for employees and customers to access their establishments. This report examines shared parking as a parking management treatment that can increase the supply of parking without building more of it. The report assesses the technical and political feasibility of a shared parking program.
