Promoting electric vehicles (EV) is another way Public Works contributes to environmental savings. Since 2015, over 13 EV charging stations have been installed around Redwood City to facilitate EV usage. See below for instructions on how to find and use EV charging stations.
Step 1 - Get a ChargePoint Card
To pay for access to EV charging stations, drivers must join the ChargePoint network, apply for a free ChargePoint card, and deposit a minimum of $25 to pay for future EV charging sessions. For more information or to register, visit www.chargepoint.com/join or call 1-888-758-4389. ChargePoint recommends using their mobile app that provides helpful information and notifications.
