book "The High Cost of Free Parking" (more info on the book and advance
praise at http://www.planning.org/bookservice/freeparking; copies of Dr.
Shoup's book will also be available for purchase).
TLC supporters already know that every parking space is like a little
factory that produces just one product: ever more car trips, which are
detrimental to pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, the environment, and
urban livability, so we invite you to come and ask Dr. Shoup directly: "If
too much subsidized parking is ruining San Francisco, what should
policymakers and advocates be doing about it?"

new offices at 995 Market St., Suite 1550. This event is FREE to current
