Data set description

Designated disability parking zones and disability meter spaces are located in commercial districts and high-density residential areas throughout Vancouver, with new spaces being added every year. In deciding where to install disability zones, we look for spaces or metered spaces that are easier for people with disabilities to access. Any vehicle displaying a permit for people with disabilities (a SPARC placard or recognized equivalent) may use them. Disability zones are identified with signs displaying the universal disability symbol and disability meters are identified with blue meter heads as well as signs.
