Station Square is Pittsburgh’s premiere dining and entertainment destination, and is located at 125 West Station Square Drive.
Station Square is a thriving office, shopping, dining, and entertainment complex that includes over 30 shops, restaurants, cafes, and a full service hotel, The Sheraton at Station Square. Station Square is also home to the Gateway Clipper Fleet, which provides seasonal tours of the area’s waterways and shuttle services to events on Pittsburgh’s North Shore.

Farkas, CEO of CarCharging. “With its retail, dining, and hotel options, we are proud to expand our partnership with Forest City by offering our services to their customers.”

CarCharging’s services utilize EV charging stations manufactured by ChargePoint®, known as Level II, which provide 240 volts with 32 amps of power to quickly recharge an electric vehicle’s battery. EV drivers can easily request a CarCharging card online, and attach the small card to their keychain to initiate use and payment at any intelligent CarCharging station. The CarCharging RFID card also allows drivers to use charging locations on the ChargePoint® Network, the largest national online network connecting EV drivers to EV charging stations. CarCharging also accepts direct payment via credit card.
Users can pinpoint EV charging station locations using the CarCharging map at http://www.CarCharging.com/. The ChargePoint® mobile application for the iPhone, Android, and Blackberry phones also provides real-time charging station location information with turn-by-turn directions. Drivers will soon be able to reserve a time slot, guaranteeing access to EV charging stations to recharge their EV.
