AAA offers digital tools for electric vehicle drivers




March 16, 2012—Electric vehicle drivers can use AAA to identify charging station locations with its digital mapping tools.

AAA offers the choice of its TripTik Travel Planner on AAA.com, or the free AAA TripTik app for smartphones, so drivers can find places to recharge their electric vehicles. There are more than 2,000 publicly available electric vehicle charging stations across the country, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

"AAA has been providing motorists with relevant and accurate travel information for more than a century," said Bill Wood, managing director, AAA Travel Publishing. "The addition of electric vehicle charging station locations to our digital mapping tools reinforces AAA's commitment to providing members the information they need in formats they want."

The company’s online and mobile mapping tools also allow people to look for gas station locations, updated gas prices, as well as hotels and restaurants, among other features.

People can access AAA’s TripTik Travel Planner at AAA.com/travel. The free GPS-based app can be downloaded from the iTunes Store or Android Market. For more information, visit AAA.com/Mobile.
