Our greatest feature for PlugShare is the ability to add new stations. If you find a station we aren't tracking, please add it! Our database is maintained as a joint effort between us, our users, and our charging network partners. By crowd-sourcing this effort we can provide the most up-to-date station information available.
If you have a public station to add, go to the main map screen and tap on the "add station" icon in the upper left hand corner:
Next, you will see this screen where you can type in the new location or move the pin by holding down and dragging to a new location on the map:
A pop up could appear if our system detects a charger within a radius of nearby chargers. This helps reduce duplicate submissions:
If the location already exists tap on "Cancel New Location", If we do not have the station tap on "Continue Adding Location" and continue to proceed:
**Name and Stations are required to save and add a new location, but please fill in as much information as you can**
Tap on "Stations" and then "+ Add a station" in the bottom grey tab to add the charging station(s) that are available at the new location:
After tapping on "+ Add a station", select the plug types:
Next, if the station is networked, select the charging network:
Tap on "Save" in the upper righthand corner:
If there are multiple stations with the same plug type, tap on "Duplicate":
To add another station with different plug types, tap on "+ Add a station" again.
Review your station summary and then tap on "save":
And finally, add a photo to your newly added charging station listing:
You can always go back and edit the station description details or number/type of plugs at any time while logged into your PlugShare account. Thank you everyone for contributing and happy charging!
