Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging
BART is growing its electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure to reduce fossil fuel consumption and support California’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal of reducing emissions by 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 as outlined in SB 32 (2016). EV charging stations at BART stations and facilities also support former Governor Brown’s Executive Order B-48-18, which sets a goal for 250,000 EV charging stations installed by 2025 and 5 million EVs on the road by 2030, and Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-79-20, which requires that all new cars and passenger trucks sold in California are zero-emission vehicles by 2035.
BART offers EV charging stations at the Warm Springs and Lafayette stations as part of a pilot. For information on how to use the EV charging stations, please see Electric Vehicle Charging under the Parking page. If you have additional questions or comments on the EV pilot program, please email [email protected].
BART brings EV charging to employee facilities
May 2019 – BART has installed EV charging stations at two operations and maintenance facilities, which will allow BART employees who cannot take BART to work because of their duty location to charge their vehicle. Employees at BART’s Hayward Maintenance Complex Component Repair Shop and eBART Maintenance Facility each have access to four Level 2 EV charging ports. Furthermore, these EV charging stations at BART facilities will provide infrastructure to support the procurement of EVs as part of BART’s non-revenue fleet.
BART Employees can access our Workplace EV Charging Guidelines via BART's intranet.
Electric vehicle charging at the Lafayette Station
May 2019 – BART has installed EV charging stations at the Lafayette BART station. There are 4 Level 2 charging ports available for BART riders. The EV charging stations are the newest part of a pilot and will be studied and monitored to assess their use and effectiveness. The study will determine how EV charging may be integrated into BART's parking portfolio in the future.
Electric vehicle charging at the Warm Springs Station
April 2017 – As BART continues to grow so will our use of renewable energy. The recently opened Warm Springs Station has a 512kW on-site solar system that powers the station and the electric vehicle (EV) chargers. The system produces enough energy to power approximately 100 homes.

Warm Springs is the first BART station with EV charging stations. There are 42 Level 2 charging ports available for BART riders. The EV charging stations are part of a pilot and will be studied and monitored to assess their use and effectiveness. The study will determine how EV charging may be integrated into BART's parking portfolio in the future.
