New Electronic Vehicle Charging Stations in Bostwick Parking Ramp

September 5, 2018

ChargePoint logo for EV charging stations

Two new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are available for staff, student, and visitor use within the Bostwick Parking Ramp.  The staff charging station is located near the staff parking entrance off Fountain NE.  The student/visitor station is located near the Bostwick NE ramp entrance.  Each station is able to accommodate two cars at a time on adjacent parking spaces.  Only electric vehicles that are using the charging stations may park in the designated spots which are painted green.

The EV charging stations are fully managed by ChargePoint, one of the world’s largest EV charging networks. Support is available 24/7 from ChargePoint either through the app or the support number listed on the station’s interactive screen. For additional information, and to use the station, drivers simply download the ChargePoint mobile app and sign up for a free ChargePoint account. Full details on how to access EV charging stations through ChargePoint can be found at the ChargePoint website including training videos and FAQs.  (www.chargepoint.com)

The cost to use an EV station is 15 cents per kilowatt hour. In order to use a station, you must have a ChargePoint account. In addition to station usage fee, users must have a valid parking permit or pay the designated parking fees. To ensure that access is available to as many users as possible, vehicles using the charging stations must be moved to a regular parking space within the Bostwick Ramp or exit the ramp when fully charged. When the vehicle is charged, ChargePoint will send the user a notification that the car is charged, and that they have 30 minutes to move the vehicle. After the 30 minute time period the user will be charged $1.00 per hour.

If the EV charging stations in the Bostwick Parking Ramp are highly utilized, more stations will be considered in the future.

Emergency closing at Ransom Street

May 17, 2018

There is a steam leak in the underground line in Ransom Street between the Music Building and the Student Center, which has also impacted AT&T utilities.  Facilities is in the process of coordinating an emergency repair, which will force a street closure at the north end of Ransom.  This means there will be no left turn from Lyon Street onto Ransom, so individuals needing to access the Bostwick Ramp will need to enter Ransom from Fountain Street.  All exiting ramp traffic will also need to turn right toward Fountain Street.

This repair will begin as soon as Facilities can coordinate the work and coordinate with the City.   At this point, the estimated length of the project is unknown, as that will need to be determined once they can assess the damage.

Please share this information with your constituents as a “heads-up” that this closure will be coming.  Contact Victoria Janowiak if you have questions!
