In order to meet the cost of entering the city center using automobile, the parking fees can be increased so that the congestion can be kept away from the city center where it is experienced at most. To support this concept, park and ride facilities are designed at the single centered city perimeters. The main objective of this study is to evaluate park and ride facilities in Istanbul, as a multi centered city, from the perspective of accessibility. The location, transfer possibilities, capacities of park and ride facilities in Istanbul were taken from ISPARK and examined.
