Through an extended numerical example, this paper develops a diagrammatic analysis of steady-state parking and traffic congestion in an isotropic downtown and provides systematic policy analysis. Unlike our previous work, the model incorporates curbside parking, garage parking, and price-sensitive travel demand in a unified setting. We examine the deadweight loss associated with underpriced curbside parking, as well as first- and second-best curbside parking capacities. We also explore the transient dynamics and stability of various downtown traffic equilibria. Keywords: cruising for parking, curbside parking, parking garages, parking policy, traffic congestion JEL Classification: D04; L91; R41; R48
