There is a serious imbalance between parking demand and capacity in cities due to limitations in their parking facilities. It is important for drivers to know about parking vacancies before their trips. Meanwhile, administrators need information about parking capacity and demand before a week begins to improve parking management. A method is proposed here for predicting parking demand and capacity by utilizing a Naïve Bayes model and different variables such as drivers’ characteristics and their trips, environmental conditions, parking attributes, and vehicle specifications. Tehran (Iran) is used as a case study etfor testing the model. Using the proposed model, it is possible to identify which parking facilities (and when) might experience spillover. For parking management and policy, demand management, and providing information about parking availability for drivers before their trips, this can be helpful.
