A dual-port Level II charging station is available for public use in the Spring Street Garage. The charging station is located on Level 1 near the Spring St. entrance and the garage management office. The station can service two vehicles. The spaces are restricted to electric vehicle charging only. Vehicles must be charging while occupying the space.
Tap your ChargePoint card or your phone (you must be signed in to the mobile app) on the station to start a charge. This will unlock the charging connector so you can remove it from the charging station. You can also tap the orange “Start Charge” button in the station information page in the mobile app.
If you do not have a ChargePoint card or the mobile app, you can call ChargePoint toll free, 24 hours a day at 1-888-758-4398. A ChargePoint Support representative can initiate a charging session if credit card information is provided.
