Paying for Charging

The cost of charging will be charged to a driver’s  ChargePoint card.  Make sure it has been set-up to use at “for pay” charging stations. To do this, you need to log in to your personal ChargePoint driver account and provide your credit card details. If you do not have a ChargePoint card, you can get one at www.chargepoint.com or by calling 888-758-4389.

The EV stations are located on the street level of the 710 Albany Street garage located at the corner of Albany and East Concord streets. The charging stations are not restricted to the BUMC/BMC community as EV owners from the neighborhood may also take advantage of our green machines, if they pay hourly parking in order to gain access to the 710 Albany parking garage.  We ask that all users adhere to the four-hour charging limit in order to make this service available to all.

Through a grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts “MassDEP”, we have been able to provide EV charging stations in both garages.  The grant enabled TranSComm to upgrade first generation stations to DUAL machines, added additional EV stations and additional parking spaces in the 710 Albany Street garage.
