Electric vehicle charging station

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Visitors can charge their electric vehicles (EV) at the Sugarlands and Oconaluftee visitor centers. There are two types of EV recharging equipment: "Level 2" units which are alternating current (AC) units that are powered by 208 Vac, single phase systems; and direct current (DC) fast charging (DCFC) units which utilize 208 Vac 3Ø power. The program is part of a larger national park initiative to reduce pollution and carbon emissions.

Charging stations operate with the Greenlots SkyNetwork using either a Greenlots RFID card or Greenlots mobile phone app if cellular service is available. Visitor centers have Greenlots RFID cards available for purchase. A fee is associated with vehicle charging. The fee covers the cost of operating and maintaining the charging unit.


Public Transportation

There is no public transportation to the national park from major cities in the area. However commercial businesses operating in the smaller communities surrounding the national park offer transportation from cities such as Knoxville, TN and Asheville, NC to the park. Information is available from local Chambers of Commerce.

The City of Gatlinburg offers trolley service from Gatlinburg, TN to Sugarlands Visitor Center and Elkmont on the "Tan/National Park" route during summer and fall. Cost is $2 roundtrip.
