Abstract:In the Netherlands, parking standards are one of the factors that form a barrier to the development of housing. High building costs, in combination with the number of required parking places, result in less housing development than required or planned (REBEL, 2016). Although public transport is one of the explaining factors of a mismatch of parking standards and car ownership; there still lacks a quantification of the effect of proximity to train stations on car ownership in the Netherlands. Therefore, this study aims to quantify the influence of train stations on household car ownership to develop recommendations to improve parking standards in urbanised residential areas in the Netherlands. So, the main research question is the following: What is the influence of proximity to train stations on household car ownership, and how can this relationship be used to improve parking standards in urbanised residential areas in the Netherlands?
