Publicly Accessible Electric Vehicle Charging
Electric Vehicles (EVs) create less greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution than traditional gasoline-fueled vehicles. EV drivers benefit from better fuel economy and financial incentives, and contribute to cleaner air and better health for the community. The Town recognizes the importance of EV infrastructure along with other healthy & sustainable modes of transportation such as walking, biking, micro-mobility, and public transportation.
The Transportation Division has taken the lead in the planning and build out of publicly accessible charging stations in Town owned parking lots. Using grant funding and Transportation Network Company local funds, the Town has installed and maintained 5 Chargepoint Level 2 Dual Port chargers in 5 public parking lots in Brookline Village, Coolidge Corner, and JFK Crossing.
The newest addition to the Town's EV infrastructure is a DC Fast Charger (Level 3) on the Beacon Street eastbound median across from 1351 Beacon Street in Coolidge Corner. The station is fully operable as of April 2023.
The Transportation Division is working with our strategic partners, Eversource and Greenspot, to expand the publicly accessible charging stations
