Accessible PARKING

  • Parking spaces for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) are available in all City lots and on the ground floor of all City parking garages.
  • In the Overture Center and State Street Capitol garages, parking for PWDs is also available next to the elevator on every level except the roof level.
  • At cashier-operated facilities, parking fees are collected upon exit by cashiers, Pay-on-Foot Stations, Exit Stations or via a Parking Fee Notice (for overnight parking).
  • A valid, state-issued "Parking for PWDs" hangtag or license plate must be properly displayed when parking in a designated "Parking for PWDs" space.
  • The hangtag or license plate exempts the PWD from parking fees or time limit restrictions ONLY when parking at a meter with a time limit of 30 minutes or longer. Parking within the cashiered section of any City garage or lot requires the payment of standard parking fees.
  • The individual to whom the hangtag or plates were issued must be in the vehicle when it is parked and when the vehicle leaves the parking space.
  • Do not operate your vehicle with the tag hanging from the rearview mirror; the hangtag could obstruct your vision and subject you to a moving traffic violation.
