The District has several programs intended to ensure on-street parking is accessible to residents and visitors with disabilities.

ADA Accessible Meters and Spaces for Persons with Disabilities
The District Department of Transportation is currently designating two (2) ADA accessible parking meters for every block face that is governed by parking meter equipment. These meters are designated by a blue dome and signify that they are compliant with the following criteria.
"Accessible parking meter" and "accessible on-street parking meter" shall mean a parking meter with the following characteristics:
- All operable parts, including but not limited to slots for payment, no higher than 48" from the ground;
- The operable parts and meter face directed at an accessible route; and
- A box of ground space free of obstacles and measuring at least 30" x 48" aligned for forward or parallel approach to the operable parts and meter
All new meter installations, multispace metering devices and new metering technologies employed by the Department will be accessible by persons with disabilities.
These spaces are not reserved for use only by persons with disabilities. They are simply marked in a manner that easily identifies them as being compliant with the ADA requirements.
