PARKING PERMITS FOR PERSONS with DISABILITIES
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR OBTAINING A DISABLITY PARKING PERMIT?
A disability parking permit must be applied for in the name of the disabled person or by the parent or guardian of the disabled person (age is not a factor where guardianship is concerned).
A permit is issued to a person with qualifying disability, and the permit may be used in any vehicle in which that person is riding. For example, a child with a qualifying disability may receive a permit to be used when he/she is riding as a passenger in any vehicle.
Permits may also be issued to a facility or an agency for vehicles they use primarily to transport people with qualifying disabilities. A Special Parking Permit Application(Form B-225) must be completed by the head of the facility or agency, and indicate the vehicle will be used at least 50% of the time for transporting eligible clients.
There is no fee for a permanent disability parking permit. However, please note that the permit is for the exclusive use of the disabled person and may be used in any vehicle in which the disabled person is riding.
