How Many Handicapped Parking Spaces Are Required Under the ADA?

The number of handicapped parking spaces that a place of public accommodation is required to have under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is based on the number of total number of parking spaces in the parking facility.  The following chart is from the U.S. Department of Justice’s 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design and shows the number of required accessible spaces based on the total size of the parking lot:
