U.S. Bank fuel card now accepted at charging points
Fleet drivers with U.S. Bank’s Voyager Network Fleet Card can now use the card to pay for electric vehicle charging through ChargePoint.
The fuel card is already accepted at more than 320,000 fuelling, maintenance and service locations and the deal, said to be a first for a US charging network, will give drivers access to around 30,000 charging stations from this summer.
Drivers will need a ChargePoint RFID card to unlock a charging station. They will be able to use their Voyager fleet card to pay for any or track any charges or transactions. Charges are set by the station owner so prices will vary but many Level 2 stations are free to drivers within predetermined time frames.
“Working with ChargePoint is an excellent example of our commitment as a bank to promoting a sustainable environment while supporting economic growth,” said U.S. Bank global transportation general manager John Hardin. “ChargePoint’s well-established nationwide presence gives our fleets instant access to an alternative power source and reflects the bank’s strategy of pursuing innovative partnerships in renewable energy.”
