City Launches Beach Wheelchair Program

This year, the City of Isle of Palms launched a Beach Wheelchair Program to offer daily use of beach wheelchairs for residents and visitors at no charge.  Use of a beach wheelchair is on a first-come, first-serve basis. No reservations are taken. 

Beach wheelchairs are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Public Safety Building, located at 30 J.C. Long Boulevard, Isle of Palms, SC 29451. They must be returned no later than 8:00 p.m. the day of the rental. The City does not pick up or deliver beach wheelchairs.

How to Use a Beach Wheelchair:

Citizens interested in using a beach wheelchair must submit a Beach Wheelchair Rental Form in person on the second floor at the Public Safety Building, Police Department side. The form is available on site. The Communications Specialist on duty will make a copy of the renter's drivers license and credit card. 

The beach wheelchair will be available for pick up at the Fire Department Apparatus Bay at 30 J.C. Long Boulevard. 

If the beach wheelchair is not returned by 8:00 p.m., the City will charge the cost of replacement to the credit card on file.
