MARIETTA, Ga. -- Eight electric car-charging stations have been added at Cobb Community Transit stations.
The Marietta Transfer Center and the Busbee Park and Ride now feature four chargers each. The stations have been active for about two weeks and used six times, according to Darryl Howell, who works in transit operations for CCT and managed the project.
Tori Collay, an Internet sales representative at Auto Nation Nissan on Cobb Parkway, said that interest in the Nissan Leaf has grown with rising fuel costs.
"Since this year, we've probably sold about 60 to 70," Collay said. "It just seems like out of the blue they're a really hot item."
