Abstract: This research presents the estimated parking demand rates (PDR) for some selected land uses in Egyptian cities Specifically, in the Greater Cairo Region which is the representing model. The aim of the research is to estimate (PDR) for these activities so that they are representative and appropriate to the circumstances and the Egyptian conditions rather than using parking rates studies from other countries such as ITE in the United States of America (USA) which are different from the Egyptian conditions. The research also aims at estimating (PDR) for activities not defined by ITE or any other codes. In this study nine land uses, namely: universities (public (PU-U), private (PR-U), and higher institutes (HI)), schools (secondary public (S-PU-S), primary public (P-PU-S), secondary private (S-PR-S) and primary private (P-PR-S)), wedding Occasions halls (WOH), and consolation Occasions halls (COH). (PDR) for these land uses were estimated and results are different from the ITE for the same land uses.
Keywords: Parking demand, Parking Generation Rate, Egypt, and ITE.
