Many of the charging locations throughout the network offer multiple 24/7 amenities, products, and services, including:

  • Multiple fast-charging stalls with chargers capable of delivering up to 350 kW.
  • Pull-through charging stalls to accommodate EV towing.
  • Plug and Charge compatibility for streamlined charging.
  • Access to restrooms, food and beverage options, and free Wi-Fi.

The partners project to have at least 25 Pilot and Flying J travel centers feature EV fast charging by 2030, with the goal of upgrading 200 locations by the end of 2024.

In total, the network will feature up to 2,000 high-power fast-charging stalls at up to 500 Pilot and Flying J locations across the United States to connect urban and rural communities. The locations have been strategically selected for the continued electrification of highly traveled corridors in all parts of the nation.
