Downtown Berkeley

How to read these charts: Before we dive in, let's go over how to read these charts. 65%-85% occupancy is goBerkeley's ideal condition for a block - this means that there are one to two spaces available. Occupancy below 65% indicates that blocks are under-utilized; over 85% means that it's very hard to find a parking space. Keep these example charts in mind as you go through the data:

Premium Area Typical Weekday

Downtown blocks have transitioned to a more ideal condition, though many are still too full. By night, over half of the blocks are too full.

Before: The morning had plenty of space on more than half the blocks, with more crowded conditions at noon and 3pm, but by the end of the day at 6pm, most of the blocks were full.

Premium Area Typical Weekend

On weekends during the day, the blocks are evenly split between ideal, too full, and too empty. By night, though, the majority of the blocks are still too full.

Before: Weekends in the Downtown Premium area were similar to weekdays. Parking was available on most of the blocks in the morning, but after 6pm, parking was difficult to find on most blocks.

Value Area Typical Weekday

Value blocks during the week are split between too full and ideal at noon. As the day continues more blocks are too empty but by night, that trend is reversed as nearly all blocks are too full.

Before: The majority of Value blocks in Downtown Berkeley were too empty throughout the day. After 6pm, though, over half the blocks were too full.

Value Area Typical Weekend

On the weekend, the Value Area blocks are mostly too empty. By night, though, the blocks are generally too full.

Before: During the morning and early afternoon, about half of the blocks were too full while the other half were too empty. By 6pm, though, over half of the blocks are too full.
