The City of Brampton is pleased to offer electric vehicle charging stations in municipal parking lots across the city to help make electric vehicles more convenient for residents and businesses in Brampton.
Brampton’s electric car charging stations are free for the public to use. Normal parking fees apply in pay parking lots.
Fine for illegal use of electric vehicle charging stations/parking spaces.
As of January 2021, a new legislative change has been implemented across Ontario to ensure electric vehicle (EV) charging spaces are used by vehicles that are plugged-in only. This change is in effect in all City of Brampton EV charging stations as of January 2021.
The fine is for non-electric vehicle and use by EVs that are not plugged-in using these designated parking spaces. On conviction, vehicle owners are subject to a $125 fine if they:
- park a non-electric vehicle in a designated EV charging space marked by the prescribed sign
- park an electric vehicle that is not plugged-in at an EV charging space marked by the prescribed sign
