ADA Accessible Parking


Vehicles displaying valid accessible parking tags or placards may park at any short-term metered space in a garage, lot or on-street for double the time limit of that meter (maximum 4 hours). Valid ADA vehicles parked in a metered long-term on-street space (over 4 hours) may not exceed the duration of posted signs. Valid ADA vehicles parked in a long-term metered space in lots and garages may not be parked for more than 14 consecutive days, except when otherwise authorized by Executive order. For details on which facilities permit 14 consecutive day parking, parking availability, payment systems, rates and hours requiring payment, please visit the Bethesda Parking Facilities , Silver Spring Parking Facilities and Wheaton Parking Facilities pages.

Payment is not required for accessible vehicles parked at metered parking spaces.

Only vehicles displaying valid accessible parking tags or placards may park at a space reserved for people with disabilities. Accessible parking spaces are located in all parking lots and garages within the parking districts.
