Find Disabled Parking

Are you looking for disabled parking options in the City of Orlando?

The City of Orlando has designated disabled parking spaces and accessibility-friendly parking policies to make it easier to park around the city.


Step 1.Check your eligibility

You must have a valid disabled parking permit or disabled license plate issued by your state to use these spaces.

Keep in mind: The disabled parking permit holder must be the one to use the permit. The permit may not be used if they do not exit the vehicle.

Step 2.Understand the rules of each location

Free on-street parking in metered spaces

You can park for free for up to four hours in an on-street metered parking space when you display your disabled parking permit, disabled license plate, or disabled veterans license plate.

Paid parking in garages and surface lots

Parking garages and surface lots that are city-owned do not have free parking available but do have designated disabled parking spaces. Most privately-owned lots and garages also have disabled parking spaces. Parking rates are the same as standard parking spaces.

Exemption from parking fees in garages and lots in some cases

You may be exempt from any parking fees if one of the following applies to you:

  • The vehicle is equipped with specialized equipment, such as a ramp, lift, or foot or hand controls for use by a person who has a disability.
  • The vehicle displays an official license plate for disabled veterans.
  • The vehicle has a Florida Toll Exemption permit displayed.
