Parking charges can be introduced to control who uses park & ride (P&R) facilities. However, the effect of charges on parking demand is unclear. This paper presents results from a before- and after analysis of fifteen rail based P&Rs in Norway where parking charges were either introduced or increased in 2018. Results show that, in most cases, the demand for parking decreased after the change in pricing, making more parking spaces available for people arriving later than the early morning. However, there is no significant change in the median distance travelled by car to reach the P&Rs.
