Mobile Accessible Parking Applications

Wheelchair parking spots
 

Planning a road trip to New York City and want to know your wheelchair parking options ahead of time? Visiting family in Los Angeles, CA but unsure where to find parking? Apps that use GPS to locate accessible parking, businesses, and restrooms are here to help! Even if you know where to find wheelchair parking around Orlando, FL, things can get a lot more complicated when you set out from your home turf. Whether you’re planning an evening with friends in Dallas, TX or going abroad, parking mobility apps are designed to take the stress out of your search for “handicap parking near me.”


Parking Mobility Apps

If you often avoid events because you have no way of knowing whether you’ll find parking, apps like these can help! Check out our favorite disabled parking finder applications below:

  • Blue Badge Parking — This parking spot finder app began as a website that hosted a detailed centralized database of wheelchair parking maps. The app condenses the database into a GPS-powered disabled parking finder — so you can find “handicap parking near me” in the palm of your hand.
  • Google Maps — In a recent update, Google maps gave users the ability to edit locations, including businesses, to include accessibility details. As users continue to contribute data, Google itself will become a wheelchair parking and accessibility app that helps you to enjoy your dinner plans — without worrying about accessibility.
  • WheelMate — More than a parking spot finder app, WheelMate also uses its GPS technology to locate clean, accessible restrooms. It also allows users to add, rate, and comment on parking and restrooms.

Wheelchair-Accessible Vehicle Types

Wheelchair-accessible vehicles are available in side entry or rear entry configurations. Most side entry vehicles are minivans, but crossovers, vans, SUVs, and even pickup trucks can be converted for wheelchair accessibility. We stock a wide range of pre-modified rear and side entry vehicles on our lot in Battle Creek:

  • Side Entry Vehicles — The lowered floors and increased headroom on side entry vehicles makes them ideal for many Orlando, FL wheelchair users.
  • Rear Entry Vehicles — If you need to enter your vehicle while it’s parked in a garage with narrow aisles, or in a lot with other vehicles just feet away, a rear entry vehicle will make it easier to get behind the driver’s seat.
