Accessible Parking Program Banner

The Austin Transportation and Public Works Department, in partnership with Austin Police, train volunteers to issue citations and warnings for illegally parked vehicles in designated accessible parking spaces. Through volunteering, residents can help ensure accessible parking is available for those who need it most. Volunteers help educate the community and improve awareness on the importance and impact accessible parking has on health and safety.
