Description: This study considers a potential tradeoff in transportation policy: the tension between efforts to reduce driving and those to promote electric vehicles. The lack of charging infrastructure has emerged as an important constraint to the growth in electric vehicle market share, particularly for people who live in apartments where at-home charging is more difficult to provide. Thus, many cities are seeking to provide charging options on public streets and in off-street public parking lots. At the same time, however, their policies to promote alternatives to the private car may require the removal of curb parking (for example, to make room for protected bicycle lanes) and the redevelopment of parking facilities for housing and other development. This study examines the extent to which these tradeoffs are salient in the case of California. The study procedures involve a randomized survey experiment. Participants will be randomly assigned to different versions of the survey. For example, one version will show a new bicycle lane that replaces a parking lane. The other will show the same new bicycle lane that replaces a parking lane with electric vehicle chargers. In this way, we will test whether respondents’ attitudes are affected by the presence of charging infrastructure.
