Electric Vehicles

Project Information

The Thruway Authority is creating an expansive network of electric vehicle charging stations, which is key to increasing the use of zero-emission electric vehicles. Because of the Thruway’s ongoing investments in EV infrastructure, there are more than 50 EV charging stations currently in operation at Thruway commuter lots, select service areas, and Welcome Centers.

In addition, as part of the on-going Service Area Redesign and Redevelopment Project, Empire State Thruway Partners will be installing at least four high-speed EV chargers at every service area, with up to six charges at the larger locations. Our goal is to create a robust, end-to-end corridor of more than 130 fast charging EV stations with an average of 30 miles between each location system wide by the end of 2025.

Level 2 and Level 3 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are available along the New York State Thruway.

  • Level 2 stations are free to use and located at nine Commuter Park and Ride Lots off of the Thruway’s mainline system. It takes approximately 4 hours to fully charge.

  • Level 3 stations are capable of supplying 50-350 kilowatts of power and enable fast-charge-capable EVs to be powered in approximately 30 minutes.
  • Applegreen Electric universal fast charging stations with up to 350kW of power. Supports all electric vehicles, including Tesla. Tesla adaptors (white) are on station #2.
