Almost half of Beverly's greenhouse gas emissions come from transportation. Expanding the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is critical to reducing our community's reliance on fossil fuels.  

The City of Beverly has installed electric vehicle charging stations at several municipal parking lots and schools to support this transition. Level 2 dual-port Charge Point chargers are available at the following locations, which are accessible 24 hours a day by the public:

  • 9 Washington Street parking lot (2 spaces)plugshare
  • 10 Pond Street parking lot (2 spaces) 
  • 11 Pond Street parking lot (2 spaces) 
  • Beverly High School (8 spaces) 
  • Ayers-Ryal Side Elementary School(2 spaces) 

The chargers are visible on electric vehicle apps such as PlugShare, ChargePoint, and Charge Hub.

Electric School BusEV_school bus_WickedLocal

The City of Beverly and Beverly Public Schools launched our first all-electric school bus in October 2020, marking a significant milestone as we transition our fleet of 27 school buses from diesel to battery-electric. The project represents the first all-electric school bus in Beverly and the first Thomas Built all-electric school bus in New England. Our second electric bus hit the road in Fall 2021. Three more are on the way!
