Disabled Parking

Marked disabled parking spaces are located on each floor of the parking garage near the elevators. Disabled parking spaces are located next to the bus shelters in both the red and blue economy lots.

Disabled parking is offered at a discounted daily maximum parking rate of $12 per day for vehicles displaying a valid state-issued disabled permit, placard or license plate. The disabled parking rate is available in the short-term garage, long-term garage or economy lot.

Disabled veterans of the United States Armed Forces can park without charge in the Economy Lot for up to a maximum of fourteen (14) consecutive days, upon meeting the requirements below. The established parking fee for the Economy Lot will be applied for any stay beyond the fourteen (14) days.

To receive the validated parking, a disabled veteran must present, at the time of exiting the Economy Lot, their valid, state issued driver's license and vehicle registration in addition to one of the five approved credentials that reflect that the disability was service-related or service-connected:

  1. A valid, state issued, Disabled Veterans license plate;

Please note, all other forms of military or veteran status, such as a Veteran Health Identification Card, that do not have ‘service-connected’ printed on the card, are not accepted to receive the validated parking.

To receive the disabled parking discount, the cashier will require the appropriate disabled parking credential upon processing your payment. Payment needs to be made at one of the open cashier booths at the exit plaza. Disabled parking discounts will not be processed at the automated Quick Pay machines in the garage.
