Abstract: The Park-and-Ride Scheme (PRS) is a demand management instrument used to help alleviate the problem of traffic congestion in Singapore. After an abortive launch as a bus-based PRS in 1975, it was revived in 1990 as a mass-transit-based PRS and subsequently fine-tuned over the years. A survey of 122 PRS users in 1996 found that cost savings were a major incentive for participating in the PRS. It is suggested that to attract more users, tighter financial restraints such as higher charges for entering and parking in the CBD (Central Business District) should be employed. Operational problems faced by users such as restrictive operating hours and unsuitable car park locations should also be attended to. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
