If you own an electric car, you can find a charging station in many public parking areas including:
- Salem Public Library
- Salem Conference Center
- Marion Parkade
- West Salem Library
Pay for charging
Blink Plus and Blink Basic Members make payments through their InCards. InCards can be activated at anytime by signing up as a Blink Plus or Blink Basic member on the
Blink website. Cards can take seven to 10 days to arrive by mail.
No membership is required to use a Blink station. If you are not a registered member, payment can be made using a Blink Guest Code, which can be accessed using any mobile device or the Blink Mobile App.
Metered and permitted parking spaces
Paying to charge your electric vehicle at a charging station does not exempt you from other charges that may apply for the parking space. If the charging station is located in a space that requires a parking permit or a metered space, you must pay those fees in addition to the charging station fees.
