This paper investigates parking and transportation challenges at the American University of Sharjah in response to regional and campus growth. A parking inventory was conducted in early 2007, including characteristics of the study area and sample population. A survey of all faculty, staff and students was conducted in February 2007. A methodology was developed for estimating a mode-choice model based on characteristics of the campus community and parking availability. The results of the survey, mode choice model and parking inventory are analyzed and compared. Finally, the research findings are summarized, and future research and programmatic needs are identified and explored.
