Electric vehicle charging stations coming to Burlington GO

Burlington electric vehicle owners may be charged up to learn GO Transit is planning to pilot charging stations in the city early next year.

GO Transit is piloting designated electric vehicle parking and charging capacity at 10 stations in two phases.

Starting today, two parking spaces with charging capacity are available at Oakville, Centennial, Whitby, Aurora, and Lincolnville GO stations.

In early 2014, five more locations will have charging stations available, including the Burlington GO Station on Fairview Street, as well as Ajax, Pickering, Erindale and Clarkson stations

Electric vehicle charging stations coming to Burlington GO

Burlington electric vehicle owners may be charged up to learn GO Transit is planning to pilot charging stations in the city early next year.

GO Transit is piloting designated electric vehicle parking and charging capacity at 10 stations in two phases.

Starting today, two parking spaces with charging capacity are available at Oakville, Centennial, Whitby, Aurora, and Lincolnville GO stations.

In early 2014, five more locations will have charging stations available, including the Burlington GO Station on Fairview Street, as well as Ajax, Pickering, Erindale and Clarkson stations

Each of the 2014 pilot stations will also have two parking spaces available for charging.

“These new electric vehicle charging stations support environmentally friendly transportation,” said Glen Murray, Minister of Transportation and Minister of Infrastructure in a press release. “They also help improve public transit by providing commuters with another option for accessing GO stations, along with carpooling, kiss-and-ride facilities and bicycle storage.”

Charging a car will be free for the first month. After that, each charging session will cost $2.50.

Users can wave a credit card (Mastercard, AMEX or VISA) or smart card (purchased through Chargepoint) over the reader to access the charger to pay.

At this time, connecting the Chargepoint system to PRESTO cards is not feasible, says GO Transit.

According to GO Transit’s website, Metrolinx is supporting the Government of Ontario’s vision for one in every 20 vehicles on Ontario roads to be an electric vehicle by 2020.
