EV Charging & Parking

Victoria is building a robust network of electric vehicle charging stations. Providing dedicated space in parkades, at community centres, and in public spaces incentivizes the shift toward zero-emissions vehicles in Victoria.

 

The City has provided the public with access to electric vehicle (EV) charging since 2013. Currently, Victoria residents and visitors can access 19 City-owned Level 2 chargers which are located in each of the five City-owned parkades and along Broad Street. 

Continued investment in EV charging infrastructure includes the six recently installed Level 2 chargers on Broad Street and Victoria’s first DC Fast Charger which will be installed on Store Street between Johnson and Pandora. Construction of the DC Fast Charger station is underway with the chargers expected to be ready for use by April 2021.

Beginning on January 4, 2021, a $1 per hour EV charging fee came into effect for all City-owned EV chargers, including those in parkades and along Broad Street. Parking and EV charging fees are be combined and paid for using the Flo App or using your preloaded Flo purchase card on Broad Street and in the Johnson Street parkade.
