Accessible parking rules

In Vancouver, you must have a valid SPARC permit to park at:

  • Designated disabled parking zones
  • Accessible meter spots

Under section 17.2(j) of Street and Traffic Bylaw 2849, it is illegal for a vehicle without a valid SPARC permit to park in designated disabled parking zones.

Report a broken meter

Do not park at a broken parking meter. You will get a ticket.

Report a broken meter online and:

  • Provide the six-digit meter number located on the side of the meter 
  • If you lose money in the broken meter, we will provide a credit of up to a $2 worth of parking
