Many of the stores I go to offer motorized shopping carts I can sit in and shop. One of the grocery stores I use does not have these. Are they in violation of the ADA?

No. Public entities are not required under the ADA to provide things such as personal mobility devices. Stores that offer this often do so as a simple courtesy for customers with disabilities.

If you have more questions about this or if you need to know more about something else under the ADA, please contact the Northeast ADA Center at 1.800.949.4232, by email at northeastada@cornell.edu or by submitting a question through our website.
