The almighty power of "free" parking.

citylab: "What policymakers didn’t quite understand then, and still don’t now, is the power of the free parking spot to overwhelm transit benefits of any size. TransitCenter recently analyzed the impact of commuter benefits on travel choices in five major cities: D.C., Miami, Seattle, San Francisco, and New York. The analysis found that, relative to a world with no benefits at all, the “net effect of the parking and transit benefits together was more driving.”"
