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, or email us for more information. 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, or send an email for more information.
The City does not issue disabled parking permits, these are issued by the Shawnee County Motor Vehicle Department.
