Accessible Parking LogoPeople who have legitimate parking placards are unable to walk unassisted for more than 50 metres.

These individuals need larger stalls to load and unload devices such as walkers and wheelchairs, and unobstructed access to curb cuts.

How to Apply for a Parking Placard

For eligibility and application information, see Parking for People with Disabilities, Service Alberta.

Proper Placard Use

  • A parking placard can only be used by the person it was issued to
  • Your placard must be hung from the vehicle's rear-view mirror with the registration number and expiry date visible
  • You must leave your vehicle when parked in a designated stall

For more information, see Proper Placard Use, Service Alberta.

Parking Violations

If a vehicle is parked illegally, the owner will be issued a $250 ticket and may face towing and impound charges. It's illegal to park in a designated accessible parking stall if your placard is expired.

No part of the vehicle may occupy any part of the stall designated for persons with disabilities. The City of Edmonton has a "no tolerance" policy for vehicles illegally parked in accessible stalls.

You can report parking complaints using the 311 mobile app or calling 311 directly.
