MCDOT Installs Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Four More Garages

MCDOT’s Division of Parking Management is installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in four more County-owned parking garages that will be available soon. The four locations will each have one station providing service to two parking spaces.

The new locations are: Wayne Avenue (Garage 60), Town Square (Garage 61) and Bonifant-Dixon (Garage 5) garages in Silver Spring; and the Auburn-Del Ray (Garage 36) Garage in Bethesda.

This brings the number of County parking garages with EV charging stations to 10, providing charging spaces for 24 vehicles. The other garages are: Bethesda Capital Crescent (Garage 31), Woodmont Corner (Garage 11) and Waverly (Garage 47) garages in Bethesda; the Cameron/Second Street Garage (Garage 7) and Kennett Street garages (Garage 9) in Silver Spring; and the Amherst Garage (Garage 45) in Wheaton.

All the stations are connected to the nationwide ChargePoint Network of searchable charging stations, are Chargepoint Level 2, and accept payment using a ChargePoint Network card or RFID enabled credit card.
