Free parking for persons with disabilities

Type: Parliamentary Questions

Topic(s): Disability Services

Ms Yeo Wan Ling To ask the Minister for Social and Family Development whether HDB will consider extending the grace period of free parking to 30 mins for appointed private vehicles escorting or ferrying persons with disabilities from their homes to a medical facility and back.


At present, caregivers ferrying persons with disabilities get a 10-minute grace period when they enter HDB and URA car parks, similar to other drivers. Thereafter, prevailing parking charges apply. We support those ferrying persons with disabilities through the carpark label scheme administered by SG Enable.

2 The car park label scheme allows caregivers ferrying persons with disabilities to use an accessible parking lot for up to one hour, sufficient time for them to help persons with disabilities board and alight safely from their vehicles. Private transport operators who serve persons with disabilities can also benefit from scheme.
