The community has voiced concerns around the lack of parking and access to key facilities, double parking and loading challenges, and disabled parking placard misuse. These issues impact the safety and vibrancy of Oakland Chinatown. Limited parking availability makes it more difficult for visitors to access businesses and encourages drivers to double park or misuse loading zones. Chinatown also has a large disabled and senior population with accessibility concerns.
The Chinatown Loading & Parking Pilot project responds to constituent concern around parking and mobility challenges. This project is being conducted as part of Park Oakland, the City's Demand Responsive Parking and Mobility Management Initiative.
