State Launches Accessible Parking Locator App
The State of Hawai’i Department of Disability and Communication Access Board has launched a new free app, “dpark.us,” with the intent to assist people with disabilities throughout the state in finding accessible parking.
State officials say the new state-wide Accessible Parking Locator App provides images and information regarding accessible parking spaces at state parks, airports, parking facilities of government offices, medical facilities, familiar local venues, and some shopping malls.
Currently, 500 individual pictures of accessible parking spaces have been added to the apps database. These photos show designated accessible parking.
The app is accessible through the Apple and Android app stores and on other mobile devices. Interested users can begin participating through downloading the app and using the database and also by uploading new photos.
Officials say the app is not intended to be an enforcement tool to cite violators.
