A free app is now available to help people find handicapped-accessible parking spaces in Hawaii.

Supported by the Hawaii State Disability and Communication Access Board, the new app will show photos of accessible parking spaces at state parks, airports, government offices and select shopping malls. It will also show photos at medical facilities and other local venues.

The app was built to help people with disabilities finding an accessible parking spaces, and is not intended to be an enforcement tool to cite parking violators, the board stated in a press release.

So far, 500 photos of accessible parking spaces throughout the state that have already been uploaded to the Accessible Parking Locator App’s database.

The free app is available for download at the App Store for Android and other mobile devices. Individuals can also upload new photos to help expand the data base.
