The Marietta Daily Journal – Electrifying news Vehicle charging stations up and running at two Cobb locations

MARIETTA — Eight electric-car charging stations are up and running at two Cobb Community Transit stations.

The Marietta Transfer Center and the Busbee Park and Ride now feature four chargers each. Active for about two weeks, the stations have been used six times, said Darryl Howell, who works in transit operations for CCT and managed the project.

Those locations were chosen in hopes of increasing ridership from electric car commuters. A car can be fully charged in two to six hours.
