Personal Mobility Devices and Charging Stations

Q: I have a motorized wheelchair that I use for my mobility. Are municipal buildings required to have charging stations in case I need to charge my wheelchair?

A: Under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a public entity is not responsible for providing individuals with disabilities personal or individually prescribed devices. As a result, the entity would not be responsible for setting up stations for the charging or maintenance of a power wheelchair.
