Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure electric vehicle (EV) charging stations

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is connecting communities by installing electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in highway rest areas.

We've installed charging stations at 22 locations. Four more are opening in early 2022 adding to the already over 2,000 Level 2 and 480 fast-charging stations available to the public.

The ministry understands the importance of providing more EV charging stations and will continue to look for other opportunities to add new charging stations to rest areas, particularly in the north.

B.C.'s rest areas are a convenient and beautiful spot to charge your EV. View the rest area map to plan your trip and check amenities like washrooms and picnic areas. Most rest area charging station sites include: 

  • Two level-3 chargers (also known as DCFC or DC fast chargers) that provide either 25kW or 50kW charge
  • One level-2 charger that provides either 7.2kW or 19kW charge

These EV charging stations are free to use and don’t require a card or network membership.
