To help users indicate stations/locations, we have created a "Map Key" allowing you quickly identify which locations are available, down, or coming soon to you.

To view the map legend click on the menu symbol to the left of the search bar: 

Next, click on the "Legend" tab at the top of the drop down menu options: 


Green station icons (public): Publicly accessible Level 1 - Level 2 stations/outlets

Orange station icons (high power): Publicly accessible high power fast charging locations - CHAdeMO, CCS/SAE Combo or Tesla Superchargers

Brown station icons (restricted): Locations with no public charging available. These locations are usually workplace employee only charging, car dealerships, or private businesses that only allow customers or hotels that only allow guests to charge.

Grey station icons (in use): Locations where all or most of the available stations are currently in use.

Wrench symbol (under repair): Indicates either the station is coming soon, under repair, and are not available for use at this time.

Blue house station icons (residential): Charging stations shared by PlugShare users

Purple map icons (place): A specific place on the map.

Rating (PlugScore): The overall score given by users when submitting a rating for a charge location

Please remember to check your filters to ensure you can view all stations available within your area. If you come across a station listing that is no longer 'Under Repair' or 'Coming Soon' and needs to be updated, please flag the location by using the "Report" button or let our team know by sending an email to with the location name or address.
