Finding a charging point
GMEV charge points will be located right across Greater Manchester — we want to make sure that there’s enough public charging infrastructure to support a significant uptake of electric vehicles now and in the future.
There will be more than 200 fast charging bays that can charge a typical EV (with a 32 amp capability) in approximately three to four hours. About one quarter of these will be in fleet depots and private car parks with the remainder in public car parks and on-street parking bays. There will also be a number of rapid chargers that can do it in around 20 minutes depending on the type of EV you choose.
If you have any further questions regarding your local area please contact us.
Charging your vehicle
There are two easy ways to use a charging bay:
- The GMEV access card
- If you register for a GMEV access card you will get a number of benefits including use of the Charge Your Car smartphone app to help you manage your account and access energy tracking and usage information.
- Pay by phone
- If you don’t have a GMEV access card, you can simply pay by phone when you arrive at a charging bay.
Whichever way works best for you — it’s easy.
Manchester, Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan will have electric vehicle charging points as the infrastructure is rolled out.
The GMEV scheme is operated by Charge Your Car, a leader in electric vehicle charging networks. It manages the payments and registration to the GMEV scheme on behalf of TfGM.
