Parking for All

Free HC Parking Graphic

Parking for disabled persons is now free in many areas in Downtown Royal Oak through February 2020.

The free parking is being offered at nearly two dozen recently added on-street handicap spots and all surface lots. (Normal parking rates apply at all city-owned parking structures.)

The locations of the on-street handicap parking spaces -- located on Washington Ave, Center St. and Seventh St. -- were selected to minimize the distance to the nearest ramp or dropped curb, and to provide a safe aisle adjacent to the parking space.

It should be noted that the new handicap spots are not necessarily ADA compliant as the roadway pavement may exceed 2 percent in some areas. However, for a retrofit of existing parking areas, the selected locations are appropriate.

The following link contains a document that shows the locations for the new handicap parking spaces within the angled parking zones of downtown Royal Oak.
