|Abstract:||Parking is an important issue of everyday life. Nowadays, as the amount of cars is rising,
to find a free parking space is paramount. There are issues such as cruising for parking
and parking spillovers, which need to be dealt with using sensible parking regulation.
This regulation should represent a compromise between the municipality, the residents
and the drivers. To know the effects of any regulation, we first need to examine how the
demand for non-residential parking is affected and by which factors. This thesis is trying
to identify the factors that affect the demand for non-residential parking and to what
extent. To model the parking demand, data from Golemio Prague City Data is used.
The main results are that the demand for parking is negatively affected by price and that
it is price inelastic. It is affected differently in different parking zones and varies during
the week and the year. The results could serve as a tool for the municipality of Prague
to handle this issue in eventual future reforms of the system.
