Accessible Parking Areas for Capitol and Senate

Public parking is very limited around the Capitol Complex.  The closest public parking facility is Union Station.  The District of Columbia does recognize accessible parking permits issued by the states and territories.  

Parking is permitted at designated handicapped spaces or any metered/un-metered parking space (no fee required), within the hours allowed for general parking in that area.  Visitors must display State issued handicapped tags or permits.  

Parking is not allowed where stopping, standing or parking is prohibited to all vehicles, in spaces reserved for special vehicles (buses, taxis, etc.), or where is would clearly be a traffic hazard.  If you have an appointment in a Senator’s office, you may request accessible parking through that office.
