Parking at EV charging stations
Electric vehicles can park at the EV charging station parking spaces, while they are charging. There is currently no specified time limit, but the electric vehicle must be charging when it is parked at the EV charging station parking spaces.
Standard combustion vehicles and electric vehicles that are not plugged in can be ticketed with a penalty of $125 for parking at the EV charging station parking spaces.
- $1.50 per hour for up to three hours
- $5 per hour after three hours
- Parking fees also apply when parking in the commercial districts, Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The public charging fees are set to allow electric vehicle customers to top up their charge. The higher fees after three (3) hours of charging help to promote turnover and availability for other electric vehicles to charge.
Use the ChargePoint app to review a map of available stations and pay for charging. There is no need to go to that parking meter as any applicable parking fees are integrated into the charging station payment.
