Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Pitt Meadows has two electric vehicle charging stations!
Electric vehicle owners can drive with confidence in Pitt Meadows knowing charging facilities are close by. Located at City Hall (12007 Harris Road), these charging stations are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and currently provided free of charge, offering electric vehicle drivers extended travel options and peace of mind. The City of Pitt Meadows is proud to support the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by promoting the use of electric vehicles.
These stations are equipped with ChargePoint Network connectivity and Level 2 charging infrastructure, which means electric vehicles can recharge more quickly than from a traditional power outlet. Download our brochure for additional information on electric vehicles.
Anti-Idling at Train Crossings

The City is also asking local motorists to avoid unnecessary idling, especially while waiting at a train crossing. Please help keep our air clean by turning off your engine.
