- Residential Parking in The Hague (2012): the aim of the project, financed by the city of The Hague, is to analyze the use of the visitor parking permit by the citizens of the city. More than 3,000,000 parking actions made in the period 2011-12 are analyzed in order to understand how the citizens use their parking permit for their visitors.
- Transport and Retail (2011-2012): in cooperation with consultants SOAB Adviseurs Leefomgeving and Stienstra Adviesbureau stedelijk verkeer. This project looks at the relationship between accessibility, in particular parking, and retail attractiveness of urban areas.
