Scottish train stations to have electric car chargers

EV charging

The roll out of electric vehicle chargers at 50 of Scotland’s train stations has begun.

Chargers are already live at Uphall, Bathgate, East Kilbride and Johnstone.

According to The Press and Journal, in the coming weeks, charging points will be installed at Aberdeen, Dyce, Elgin and Wick among dozens of others.

They will be free to use, but electric vehicles will still have to pay parking fees.

Drivers must also have a valid ChargePlace Scotland card to use the charger.

Rebecca Roper, community manager at ChargePlace Scotland, said: “We are delighted to welcome the new ScotRail Alliance charge points onto the growing ChargePlace Scotland network.

“The addition of these charge points presents the opportunity for greener commuting and travel, and also provides more recharging options at convenient locations for the increasing number of electric vehicles on Scotland’s roads.”
