Shopmobility and Parkmobility
Brentwood's Shopmobility and Parkmobility schemes are free to users.
Pick up a scooter for shopping at the town's multi-storey car park and staff will help you choose the right one for you and teach you how to use it safely.
Kerbs around the High Street have been dropped in many places and at road junctions to allow safe and easy access right across the town.
Larger shops in the High Street have automatic opening doors and entrances at the same level as the pavement.
- Brentwood town centre has 7 electric powered scooters and 1 manual wheelchair.
- Shopmobility is open five days a week from 9:30am to 4:00pm and Saturdays 9:30am to 14:00pm.
- The scheme is free to join and free to use.
- Once signed up (proof of identity and address are needed) at the multi-storey car park in the town (see car parking map for directions to multi-storey car park), you are also eligible to use Parkmobility.
