Employees who want to use one of the 16 new electric car-charging stations in Lot 16A, Lot 16E, Sixth Avenue Parking Deck and the 19th Street Parking Deck must obtain a special electric vehicle permit from UAB Parking and Transportation.
To acquire an EV permit, employees must bring their vehicle registration to the Parking and Transportation office at 608 8th Street South; the registration must be in the employee’s name and EV permits must be renewed annually.
Unlike the eight public access charging stations on campus that assess a fee and require the ChargePoint mobile app to operate, the new employee-only charging stations do not charge per use. However, EV permits will be charged at a rate associated with the lot or deck in which they are located. Employee parking permit pricing can be found on the UAB Parking and Transportation website.

“At UAB, we want to give UAB employees every opportunity to consider sustainable options, especially when it comes to their commute,” said Julie Price, manager of UAB Sustainability.
The charging stations are subject to a four-hour time limit, and drivers who violate these policies are subject to a fine. Two more employee-only stations will open with the new Collat School of Business building later this summer.
Employees who drive an electric vehicle but are not assigned to a lot or deck that supports EV charging should contact UAB Parking and Transportation at 205-934-3513 or UABParking@uab.edu to request parking reassignment or give user feedback.
