Applying for an accessible parking spot on your street? Learn the rules and regulations first.
Things to Know:
- If you do get a parking space, other vehicles with a disabled plate or placard are allowed to park there too, including cars from other states.
- You still need to follow street cleaning schedules, snow emergencies, and other parking restrictions. You also can’t abandon a car in an accessible parking spot (parking for more than 10 days).
Eligibility and Renewal:
You need to tell us if there is a change in your disability, address, or eligibility. If you are no longer eligible for the spot, we will remove it.
- Accessible parking signs are the property of the City. You can’t install or remove signs, or paint the curb or poles to mark off a spot.
- If you try to change the signs or paint on the street, or misuse the parking spot in any way, we will immediately remove the signs.
- This program isn’t governed by any federal or state laws. It’s managed by the City of Providence Department of Public Works. The Department of Public Works has the right to approve or deny any applications.
