IconThe 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 368-3931, or email us at for more information.
