the tax office in their county to request a disabled parking permit or license plate.
Customers who have a valid county-issued disabled permit or license plate (including disabled veteran license plates)
may park in any designated disabled parking space or any other non-restricted parking space, with a valid disabled permit/license plate displayed
and a valid TAMU parking permit. Both permits must be displayed to be authorized to park.
Disabled customers who do not have a valid TAMU parking permit but do have a valid
county-issued disabled permit or license plate displayed may pay to park in any of our visitor parking facilities
and make use of designated disabled parking spaces or other non-restricted parking spaces within the visitor facility.
The ONLY person authorized to park within the guidelines of the disabled policy detailed above is the person to whom the disabled parking permit/license plate is issued.
