Effect of different pricing schemes on roadside parking characteristics: case of Necatibey Ave, Ankara

Öztürk, Osman Fuat
A Central Business District (CBD) is defined as “the place of privileged exchanges” such as, goods, information, etc. Parking management is required in CBD areas in order to serve the land (roadside area) effectively to more vehicles for parking purpose. It is not possible to meet the urban parking demand by only off-street parking facilities especially at the CBDs; the concept of “roadside parking (also referred as on-road parking) management” has been developed since its first use in the 1950s. Parking management will be a major problem for most of the cities in developing countries, including Turkey, as the motorization rates have been increasing rapidly. Pricing schemes has powerful effect on parking duration of roadside parking vehicles. In Necatibey Ave, it was observed that free usage of roadside parking does not disturb drivers to move their vehicles for a long time whereas variable pricing of roadside parking increase the circulation of parking vehicles. After replacing variable parking pricing with low flat rate pricing, on Necatibey Ave, circulation is observed to decrease highly, and this application created an overload situation for parking demand.


The Impact Of Spatial Factors On The Use Of Public Space From Gender Perspective: A Comparative Study On Ulus Atatürk Square And Kuğulu Park
Kaya, Beste; Kayasü, Serap; Department of City and Regional Planning (2023-1-24)
The public spaces in the cities are defined as the daily activity area where thoughts, actions, and meetings for the common benefit of society are produced and developed. However, public spaces vary in urban uses in line with their location, socio-cultural structure, gender, and lifestyles. So the use of public space occurs within the city differently. The aim of this study is to examine whether the gender role in the use of public space patterns changes in line with safety, spatial diversity, and time. In ...
The effects of land policy on urban redevelopment: tracing changing property rights in Yenimahalle
Aycan, Başak; Özdemir Sarı, Özgül Burcu; Department of City Planning (2021-6)
Redevelopment of urban areas means reorganization of property rights through land policies and policy tools. This study is built on the argument that the earliest property pattern established in an area by land policies has a significant effect on the initial urban form, future transformation, future urban form and property pattern in that area. The theoretical framework is built on the causal two-way relationship between land policies and property rights. Land policies reorganize property rights through va...
Effect of extraction conditions on hemicellulose yields and optimisation for industrial processes
Celebioglu, Hilal Yilmaz; Çekmecelioğlu, Deniz; DERVİŞOĞLU, MUHAMMET; KAHYAOĞLU, TALİP (2012-12-01)
Hemicellulose is a valuable component of agro-food industrial wastes and used in various areas such as drug manufacture and food industry for encapsulation and emulsification. In this study, effects of raw material type, particle size, and extraction conditions (alkaline concentration, temperature, time) and methods (direct alkaline extraction, alkaline extraction after component removal and acidic extraction method) on hemicellulose yields were investigated. Sugar beet pulp and corn wastes were used as raw...
GIS-based stochastic modeling of physical accessibility by using floating car data and monte Carlo Simulations
Ertuğay, Kıvanç; Düzgün, H. Şebnem; Department of Geodetic and Geographical Information Technologies (2011)
The term physical accessibility has widely been used by geographers, economists and urban planners and basically reflects the relative ease of access to/from several urban/rural services by considering various travelling costs. Numerous accessibility measures, ranging from simple to sophisticated, can be found in the GIS based accessibility modeling literature. However, whether simple or sophisticated, one of the fundamental shortcomings of the current GIS-based accessibility measures is that they are gener...
Influence of CSR perceptions on OCB: The mediating role of trustworthiness
Bezci, Mehmet Serhan; Aşcıgil, Semra Feriha; Department of Business Administration (2021-12)
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) have been an important aspect of business for both commercial and public organizations since the pace of globalization is constantly increasing.
