New EVgo Electric Fast Chargers in the Union Station Parking Garage
On April 22, 2021, to commemorate Earth Day, USRC, Union Station Parking Garage and Bus Facility, and Colonial Parking hosted an event at which four new EVgo electric fast chargers were launched. The EVgo electric fast charging stations, which are located on the first and second levels of the parking garage, are named for Presidential First Dogs: the Bidens’ German Shepherds, Champ and Major; one of the Obamas’ Portuguese Water Dogs, Sunny; and one of the George W. Bush family’s Scottish Terriers, Miss Beazley. The new EVgo stations use EVgo Access®, an innovation embedded into the EVgo app to enable customers to access charging stations in gated parking lots without paying additional parking fees. At the event, remarks were given by Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, White House National Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy, and Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo.
