City of Victoria parkades are now electric car friendly

Eight charging stations installed at five parkades downtown

The City of Victoria has thrown its support behind electric car owners, with the installation of eight new charging stations in its parkades.

The Centennial Square, Johnson Street and Bastion Square locations each have one charging station, the View Street parkade has two and the Broughton Street car park has three units.

Normal parking fees apply when vehicles are inside the parkades, but cars can be charged at no extra cost.

Ask a parking attendant for an activation card to use the stations.

Electric bikes can also charge up at city parkades.
