Last week, PennDOT implemented an idea first proposed by Rep. Jason Silvis (R-Westmoreland/Armstrong/Indiana) to bring the disability parking placard renewal process into the 21st century. In June, the House passed Silvis’ House Bill 2337, which would require PennDOT to allow for an online renewal application process for disability placards. The bill has been in the Senate Transportation Committee since.Customers with a permanent disability parking placard can now renew it, receive a replacement or update their address online. This will help save time for customers by eliminating the mail-in process and subsequent processing of paperwork. Customers with Temporary Person with Disabilities Parking Placards are also able to update their address and request replacement identification credentials through this online service.
