Free Charging Stations in Parking Garages.

To accommodate the growing interest in low/zero emissions vehicles, the town has equipped the parking structures with free charging stations. The six multi-port stations (five in Vail Village and one in Lionshead Village) accommodate the newest generation of electric, plug-in electric and electric extended range vehicles. Each location is able to serve two cars at a time with high speed charge. The stations will produce an 80 percent or more charge within the two-hour free parking time frame of the winter paid parking season. All charging stations have been upgraded to tell users when charge is complete via text message. Contact the Vail Welcome Center at 970-476-4790 for details.
