PURPOSE AND SCOPE

CSULB is committed to supporting Electric Vehicles as a sustainable transportation option for our campus community, as they help to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions and improve ambient air quality. This is in accordance with the goals and guidelines set forth by the South Coast Air Quality Management District. Through the Adopt-A-Charger Program and the generous endowment of CSULB alumnus Doug Korthof, the University provides employees, students and visitors with Electric Vehicle Charging Stations to encourage their use of electric vehicles.

GUIDELINE STATEMENT

Equipment Selection and Procurement

The EV Chargers are owned, operated and maintained by the CSULB Department of Parking and Transportation Services.  The CSULB Departments of Parking & Transportation Services and Physical Planning & Facilities Management work together to determine EV Charger specifications, equipment selection, funding opportunities, and site selection.

CSULB Employee, Student, and Visitor use of EV Chargers

University employees, students and visitors who drive an electric vehicle, and who need to charge that vehicle may park for up to the posted number of hours in a parking space marked “Electric Vehicle Charging Only.”

A current valid paid CSULB parking permit is required at all times, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to park anywhere on campus, including the EV Charging parking spaces.  For the EV Charging spaces inside the Parking Structures, an additional permit from a parking permit dispenser is required to document the start time of EV Charging to ensure that the posted time limit is not exceeded.  The price to charge may be adjusted based on current grant funding restrictions.

Use of the EV Charging parking space is limited to the posted time limit.  Vehicle parked beyond the posted time limit are subject to citation per CVC 21113A.

PROCEDURES

To use the EV Chargers, the electric vehicle must be legally parked in an EV Charging Parking Space and have a current valid paid CSULB permit prominently displayed.  For the EV Charging spaces inside the Parking Structures, an additional permit from a permit dispenser is required to document the start time of EV Charging to ensure that the posted time limit is not exceeded.  This additional permit may be obtained by entering the coupon code at the permit dispensers inside the structures.

EVs may be parked in an EV Charging space for up to the posted number of hours.  After the vehicle has been parked in the EV Charging space for the posted number of hours, the vehicle must be moved to another parking space or it will be cited per CVC 21113A.

Requests for repairs should be called into the CSULB Department of Parking and Transportation Services at 562-985-4146.
