Add a public station location to the PlugShare map

Our database is maintained in a joint effort between PlugShare, our users, and our charging network partners. Crowd-sourcing this effort is one of our greatest features as our community constantly adds new locations to the PlugShare map. It's our community that ensures we always provide users with the most up-to-date location information available.

If you find a location we aren't tracking yet, please add it! Select the platform you're using below for more specific instructions on adding new Public Charging Locations:

You will be required to provide the location name, address, charger details, and whether the station is active/coming soon* when adding a new location. We also encourage you to provide additional details as prompted to help other drivers, such as a description with helpful tips on what users can expect when visiting the location.

 

A note about location edits:

After any new charging location is published, our editorial team reviews the posted listing. Other users may have the ability to edit or add details to the location as well, so you may notice some changes from your original listing. If you notice inconsistent edits are made to the location, feel free to Submit a request so that our team can lock the location for editing.

*Locations which are (Coming Soon): 

If you notice a location which is not yet open, but will become open within the next 30 days, go ahead and add it to our map! When confirming details, you will be required to confirm if the location is open/active. If you answer "No," then the location will include "(Coming Soon)" in its name, and our editorial team will verify when it's opened and ready for an update on the map.
