just don't work
for people with disabilities
Our coalition is urging California to allow mobile fueling because people with disabilities need an alternative to the gas station
Support drivers with disabilities
We are tired of big oil being put first over people with disabilities.
Our coalition is asking California to quit propping up big oil by maintaining decades-old rules meant for gas stations. We believe Californians with disabilities deserve options.
Today, access to mobile fueling is limited. California must make mobile fueling more available because it is the best alternative to traditional gas stations for drivers with disabilities.
Allowing mobile fueling could drastically improve mobility and independence for millions of drivers across the Golden State.
The Benefits of Mobile Fueling
Gas station pump handles and buttons have more germs per square inch than the average toilet seat. Mobile fueling is the only 100% contactless way to fuel your vehicle, so it naturally limits the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Without consistent access to fueling, drivers with disabilities are left to depend on gas station attendants. There is no reason to be forced to rely on others while mobile fueling exists for people with disabilities who drive.
Gas stations are prohibitively cumbersome for millions of Californians with disabilities. Although gas stations are required to provide reasonable accommodations, many struggle to follow the rules or choose to ignore them altogether. Mobile fueling is the most accessible solution for drivers with disabilities.
Providing mobility options for people with disabilities opens new opportunities. This makes travel, commuting, and everyday life easier.
"Mobile fueling can make driving a more independent and accessible experience for drivers across California that often get stuck at gas stations simply because they can't pump their own gas."
