The Americans with Disabilities Act requires that a percentage of the total parking spaces in any parking garage or lot be ADA accessible spaces. If you have questions regarding accessibility, contact us at 785-368-3761, or by email.
The City of Topeka provides 53 on-street ADA accessible parking spaces in our downtown metered and unmetered parking spaces, and 54 off-street ADA accessible parking spaces divided appropriately between our parking garages and lots, which exceeds the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Parking meter hoods are available, for a monthly fee, for drivers with a severe mobility impairment. This does not apply to all drivers with a disabled parking permit and each case is evaluated individually. Contact the Parking office at 785-368-3931, or email us for more information.
If you own a parking lot and want to install accessible parking spaces, you may need a permit from the Development Services office. Contact us at 785-368-3704. The spaces also need to meet City design standards and your design may need to be reviewed by the City Engineering Division. Contact us at 785-368-3020.
The City does not issue disabled parking permits, these are issued by the Shawnee County Motor Vehicle Department.
