Electric vehicles

We have 12 electric vehicle (EV) charging points at the station, including an accessible EV disabled parking bay. These are looked after by Connected Kerb and need to be paid for separately. To charge your car visit the Connected Kerb website or download the app on your Android or your iPhone.

Latest updates

Since opening, the station has averaged 200 passengers a day and we expect more in 2024, with the number of weekend passengers already exceeding expectations.

We estimate around 75% of station journeys are made sustainably, mostly by walking or cycling.

We'll keep working with Network Rail, Southeastern, and Thanet District Council to make the station the hub of Thanet transportation.
