Four 50kw ( Maybe 100kW ) Rapid Chargers (These can charge 2 cars at the same time ( CCS & Chademo ) Plus each Rapid has a AC 22kW socket on it
When i called there only 2 Rapids out of 4 working ( the ones working are nearest the Main building )
26 x 7kw Sockets ( On Free Vend just plug in )


The fully solar powered site is served by zero-emission electric buses, operating every 10 minutes along dedicated bus lanes taking just 15 minutes to travel to Leeds City Centre.

Leeds did always strike me as a council that saw EV charging (and EV's in general) as important. The charging facilities in the Woodhouse Lane car park were useful, though frequently the council would be charging their own vans there all the time.

They don't charge at Elland Road park & ride if you are just using the Rapid Charger there. ( i have used the Rapid a few times / CYC Polar Plus needed )

The Rapid Chargers at Stourton Park & Ride have contactless payment devices on them ( so payment needed might be coming soon )
So you might be ok if only using the Rapid Chargers to charge for less than i hour

I sent a email to I park & ride that run the site:
Do you need to buy a ticket if your only using the Rapid Charger to charge your car for less than hour and not using the bus ?

Hello David If you are not boarding the Park and Ride bus to travel on the bus. A bus ticket isn't required. Thanks Sue

So if we come up shopping and park on one of the 7kw chargers do we have an hour or is it longer as it might take 3-4 hours to charge the car? If its just an hour we would be better of going on a rapid whilst waiting for a bus

The open 7 kW chargers are for anyone that use the park & ride bus so no time limit :)

The rapids are for Quick Charging for less than I hour or maybe longer if no one is waiting and at some point may have a time limit.
when i called there last week the Rapids did not need a card to start a charge ( so still on Free Vend )
