Find an Electric Vehicle Charging Station

electric vehicle chargingIf you own an electric car, you can find a charging station in many public parking areas including:

  • Salem Public Library
  • Salem Convention Center
  • Chemeketa Parkade
  • Liberty Parkade
  • Marion Parkade
  • West Salem Library

Pay for Charging

Blink Plus and Blink Basic Members make payments through their InCards. InCards can be activated at anytime by signing up as a Blink Plus or Blink Basic member on the Blink website. Cards can take seven to 10 days to arrive by mail.

No membership is required to use a Blink station. If you are not a registered member, payment can be made using a Blink Guest Code, which can be accessed using any mobile device or the Blink Mobile App.

Metered and Permitted Parking Spaces

Paying to charge your electric vehicle at a charging station does not exempt you from other charges that may apply for the parking space. If the charging station is located in a space that requires a parking permit or a metered space, you must pay those fees in addition to the charging station fees.
