Anyone with a U-M permit, no matter the permit grade, can park at the stations of up to four hours for free, while others can pay to use the spaces.

The new stations, installed earlier this fall, accommodate charging equipment up to 240 volts.

They add to the growing number of electric car outlets in the city. This summer, the city introduced 18 charging stations at six public parking locations downtown.
