This project investigated the limits of the current transportation and parking systems, evaluated improvements to these systems, and explored innovative changes. We analyzed the current car parking availability and potential alterations. We investigated current boat parking regulations, and proposed additional temporary boat parking spots, and created a smartphone application design to regulate boat parking. We analyzed reconfiguring water bus service throughout the historic city and adding a subway line to the city’s infrastructure. The analyses created by this project are an important first step in improvements to Venice’s transportation and parking systems.
