In this study, an application of the location theory on the allocation of the off-street parking facilities is explored. A multi-objective linear Integer Programming model is developed for this problem. Due to its linearity, the proposed compromise programming method for the model can be solved by the LINDO compute software. Based on the results of the numerical experiment, the proposed model can provide reasonable solution to the problem addressed. The following information can be provided by the proposed solution procedure for the decision makers to determine the locations of the off-street parking facilities: the optimal locations of facilities, the demands served by each facility, and the optimal type for each of the selected parking facilities.
