    GFleet lives!

    They have a large number of Leafs and Volts in the sprawling Google 'campus' now with J1772 all over the place.

    (Most are ChargePoint, and unless you are with Google you get "restricted access only" when trying to unlock them.)

    Someone told me that basically anyone (working for Google) can check them out by the hour similar to the way Zipcar works.

    Yup - the GFleet helps those who take the shuttles (very nice buses with WiFi) to/from work and need to run errands during the day, that sort of thing. Charger spots are a little tight right now - the Leafs and Volts easily outstrip the chargers and they need to be plugging in most days. I used one of the ChargePoints once just to verify the adapter cable worked (yup). Rolf was nice enough to make sure there's a 14-50 near the charger spots in the building where I work.
