Handicapped Accessibility


   
 

The City of Myrtle Beach is committed to accessibility for our residents and visitors with disabilities.  The following information will be helpful in your travels around the city.

Beach-Going Wheelchairs

Myrtle Beach has a number of beach-going wheelchairs available for use at no cost on a first-come, first-served basis.  The chairs are equipped with balloon tires and safety belts for people with disabilities. To acquire the use of one these wheelchairs,

  • To acquire the use of one of these wheelchairs from April 15 through September 15, contact the nearest lifeguard stand or police dispatch at 843-918-1382.  Visitors will be directed to the nearest wheelchair box at the beach accesses listed below.  Either a lifeguard supervisor or a Beach Patrol officer will unlock the box and make the chair available.  Chairs are issued on a first-come, first-served basis for an hour at a time during this period and must be signed out at the box.  Please bring a form of identification with you to leave with officials while you are using the chair.  In addition, you are responsible for checking back in after the hour is up to see if anyone is waiting to use the chair. If no one is waiting, you may continue to use the chair for another hour.  When finished with the chair, please contact the nearest lifeguard or dispatch, and someone will meet you at the box to sign in the chair.  Wheelchairs are not available after 5:00 p.m.  Note also that all chairs may be in use at some times.  Here's the list of wheelchair boxes:

  • From September 15 to April 15, call police dispatch at 843-918-1382 to arrange for use of a chair for up to one week.  We will bring the chair to your residence or hotel lobby during the fall and winter months.  Use of the chairs is free, but we do require a photo identification.

Parking and Parking Meters

In South Carolina, any vehicle displaying a valid handicapped, Purple Heart, Disabled American Veterans or Medal of Honor license tag, or a valid and official handicapped hang tag, may park for free at any public-operated parking meter.  If your vehicle displays one of these, then you do not have to pay a municipal parking meter anywhere in South Carolina. Of course, city buildings have designated handicapped parking spaces.
