Beach Wheelchairs | Americans With Disabilities Ocean City MD

The Town of Ocean City is pleased to offer this benefit to its visitors in need of assistance traveling across the sand. Use of a city owned chair is a privilege, and we ask that you view it as such by abiding by a few simple guidelines established below. This free service is monitored by the Town’s Beach Patrol staff. Please remember that our Beach Patrol is here primarily to provide safety services to our beach-goers, therefore other beach-related responsibilities may cause a possible lengthy delay in staff attending to the distribution and collection of beach wheelchairs. Your patience is appreciated.

  • For access to chair, to get a wheelchair box unlocked or to report damage or problems with a chair see a lifeguard or call 410-520-5231 10am – 4pm.
  • Available for use 10am – 5pm.  Be prepared to show your driver’s license and complete wheelchair permit and waiver.
  • Use chair only on beach/sand and within 1 block of the wheelchair box.
  • Use at your own risk.  Do not put chair in water.  Do not inflate or deflate tire air pressure.
  • Return beach wheelchair to lifeguard after transferring to another chair so that it may be available to others.
