    RECHARGE Scheme
    The RECHARGE scheme is a MetroAccess Initiative in partnership with local businesses and Mobility Aids Australia Pty Ltd. The RECHARGE Scheme is an ongoing scheme being implemented throughout the state of Victoria.

    The RECHARGE scheme is a simple and effective means of ensuring that people who use an electric scooter or wheelchair can travel without the fear of being stranded by a flat battery.
    Itís about encouraging local businesses to provide a power point
    so customers can recharge their battery at their business, if required.

    Northcote Town Hall is able to provide patrons with these facilities. Please ask at reception for assistance.

    To locate your nearest RECHARGE point you can log onto the RECHARGE FINDER website www.rechargescheme.org.au or contact your Darebin MetroAccess Officer, contact details listed on the back of the Darebin Recharge Brochure.

    If you have an onboard charger, this means you already have your charger with you and can recharge at any business affiliated with the RECHARGE Scheme. If you have a separate charger, you need to remember to take it with you
