ADA Design Guide

Accessible Parking Spaces When a business restripes a parking lot, it must provide accessible parking spaces as required by the ADA Standards for Accessible Design. Failure to do so would violate the ADA.

Accessible Parking Spaces for Cars Accessible parking spaces for cars have at least a 60-inch wide access aisle located adjacent to the designated parking space. The access aisle is just wide enough to permit a person using a wheel chair to enter or exit a car. These Parking spaces are identified with a sign and located on level ground. The stall is 8' wide.

8 5 8  

Van-Accessible Parking Spaces Van-accessible parking spaces are the same as accessible parking spaces for cars except for three features needed for vans:

  • a wider access aisle (96")
  • vertical clearance to accommodate van height at the van parking space, the adjacent access aisle, and on the vehicular route to and from the van-accessible space, and
  • an additional sign that identifies the parking spaces as "van accessable"

One of eight accessible parking spaces, but always at least one, must be van-accessable.

Location Accessible parking spaces must be located on the shortest accessible route of travel to an accessible facility entrance.
