Parking layouts are strategies for efficiently organizing multiple indoor or outdoor parking spaces. Often laid out in parking lots or designed as multi-level parking structures, parking facilities are essential for systematically storing vehicles in public and private settings. Parking parameters differ between countries and governments and each has developed their own standards. For example, parking spaces in the United States are larger on average than parking spaces in Europe. Strategies to consider when laying out parking are: the directions of traffic, systems of either one or two way traffic, the angle of the spaces, the type of vehicles being parked, and the inclusion of pedestrian walkways and landscape elements.

What are the factors to consider in a parking lot layout?

The factors to consider in a parking lot layout include: parking lot size, pavement, parking space angles in consideration to level of vehicle turnover, accessibility requirements (ex. ramps), lighting design, landscaping, drainage, and overall traffic flow including that of pedestrians.

How do you design parking lots for buses and trucks?

Space efficiency (size and angle) is a primary concern for the design of parking lots for buses and trucks. Pavement thickness should be a focus when considering possible heavy loads from these vehicles. In an average parking lot, these heavier kinds of vehicles are typically designated to specific areas and will follow specific routes around the lot.

What is a parking management plan?

A parking management plan expresses the intended management of the use of parking on a certain property. These plans are typically in response to found specific parking and traffic issues. It often identifies developments or changes in policies, practices, and budgets for these implementations.

45° Parking Spaces

The 45° Parking Space can accommodate more vehicles compared to parallel parking and 30° parking. This is made possible by the increase in the angle of parking. The 45° Parking Space is also easily maneuverable as it does not require vehicles to make a sharp turn while parking.

Parallel Parking Spaces
Plans for Parallel Parking layouts based for both US Standard parking spaces and European | Compact Car spaces

Fitting a car in a Parallel Parking Space is the most challenging activity for any driver. There are many things to watch for, such as your car’s dimension, available space, and executing several turns so that you do not knock other cars. It is majorly common in busy streets and tight spaces. It involves parking a car parallel to and in front of another.

Parking Spaces

A Parking Space is a paved or unpaved space for parking in a busy street, parking lot, or parking garage. Vehicles in a parking space can either be in parallel parking, angled parking, or perpendicular parking. They are marked so that each vehicle fits into the designed marked area. Parking space can either be free or paid for.

60° Parking Spaces

The 60° Parking Space is usually the middle ground between straight and 45° parking spaces. Its advantage is it takes up less space and enables cars to maneuver in and out with ease. Vehicles usually are at 60° in the direction of the road.

30° Parking Spaces

When it comes to parking space designs that maximize space, the 30° Parking Space stands out among all others. Vehicles in 30° Parking Space are parked at 30° to the road alignment. Another advantage of this type of parking space is it offers better maneuverability and reduces delays caused to the track.
