Blue Badge parking in York

Blue Badge parking in on-street bays

Blue Badge holders can park in on-street 'pay and display' bays, free of charge, with no time limit during normal 'pay and display' hours, usually between 6.00pm and 8.00am.

Some on-street bays have waiting restrictions (single yellow lines), restricting parking between certain hours of the day - Blue Badge holders:

  • can use bays with waiting restrictions for a maximum of 3 hours during the hours that yellow lines are enforceable (usually between 8.00am and 6.00pm)
  • must display a time clock during restricted hours

Relevant signage is place alongside every 'pay and display' bay.
