Accessible Parking

Vehicles displaying a valid SC or other state-issued disability license plate or disability placard may park in:

Designated spaces for persons with disabilities, as long as the vehicle is driven by or is transporting the person whose name appears on the license plate registration certificate or placard certificate. The placard must be clearly visible – either hanging from the rearview mirror or lying face-up on the dashboard.

Any of the City’s time limit parking spaces with no time restriction, as long as the vehicle is driven by or is transporting the person whose name appears on the license plate registration certificate or placard certificate. The placard must be clearly visible – either hanging from the rearview mirror or lying face-up on the dashboard. Please note that this does not apply to spaces where public parking is prohibited. Examples include loading zones; spaces where parking is prohibited during street sweeping operations and spaces marked “Reserved” in general, or specifically reserved for law enforcement, food trucks, valet parking, etc.
Any City-owned garage for free, as long as the vehicle is driven by or is transporting the person whose name appears on the license plate registration certificate or placard certificate. When entering the garage, press the button to pull a ticket and proceed to a parking space. Please note that you may not park in spaces marked “Reserved.” When exiting the garage, press the “Call” button to speak to a Parking Services staff member. Garage exits are monitored by video, so the staff member will ask you to show your disability placard for verification, and will open the gate remotely so that you may exit the garage.  

Any City-owned garage for free when Special Event rates are in effect, as long as the vehicle is driven by or is transporting the person whose name appears on the license plate registration certificate or placard certificate. When entering the garage, show your disability placard to the Parking Services attendant for verification. Please note that you may not park in spaces marked “Reserved.”  

Any City-owned surface lot for free, as long as the vehicle is driven by or is transporting the person whose name appears on the license plate registration certificate or placard certificate.
