Donald Shoup is Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Urban Planning at UCLA Angeles. His research has focused on how parking policies affect cities, the economy, and the environment. In The High Cost of Free Parking, published in 2005 and updated in 2011, Shoup recommended that cities should (1) charge fair market prices for on-street parking, (2) spend the meter revenue to finance added public services in the metered neighborhoods, and (3) remove off-street parking requirements. In Parking and the City, published in 2018, Shoup and his co-authors report on the subsequent flowering of research and action on these three reforms. Shoup is a Fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners and an Honorary Professor at the Beijing Transportation Research Center.
