Abstract

Parking is an essential component of the transportation system. Insufficient parking spaces provided brings many problems to the campus society as well as to the environment such as congestion, high accident rate; shortage of parking spaces, low air quality and high maintenance cost to maintain the transportation infrastructure and facilities. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the satisfaction of the parking facilities provided by Taylor's University hence proposing a solution to the issue. The outcome of this research is to benefit the student and staff that are driving and park their vehicles at Taylors University parking facilities.

Keywords: parking; sustainability; facilities management
