November 27, 2013 – New electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are up and running at five GO Transit stations in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton areas: Aurora, Centennial, Lincolnville, Oakville and Whitby.

Meantime, Ajax, Burlington, Pickering, Erindale and Clarkson GO stations will open EV charging facilities in early 2014. Charging a car will be free for the first month; after that, each charging session will cost $2.50. Electric vehicle users can wave a credit card or a ChargePoint smart card over a card reader to pay for their charging access.

EBMag checked out the installation at the Aurora GO Station, and found two ChargePoint units. These new stations are part of a three-year pilot program, explains the government, which may be expanded, depending on demand.
