EV Card

The EV Card is an easy way for EV drivers to share charging stations.

How It Works

Just topping off?

Display the green OK TO UNPLUG side.


An EV driver whose trip relies on a charge will know they can unplug your vehicle. If they finish before you return to your car, they can plug you back in.

Need a full charge?

Display the red CHARGE NEEDED side.


EV drivers will know not to unplug your vehicle unless it is fully charged. If all of the stations were occupied when you parked, an EV driver can plug your car in when they unplug.

Make sure to

  • Place the card on your dashboard or in another highly visible location inside your vehicle.
  • Write your phone number in the space provided if you would like to be reachable by other EV drivers. This can be helpful for any unique situations that arise.
  • Use the phone number provided to confer with the other driver and mitigate any potential issues.
  • Be courteous to your fellow EV drivers.
