Ather Energy on Tuesday announced it has joined hands with Southern Railways to install electric scooter charging points in MRTS/Suburban stations in the city of Chennai. Aimed at helping electric vehicle owners re-power their vehicles conveniently, these chargers could potentially also help those who choose to park their vehicles and avail train services.

In a press statement, Ather informed that it will get a dedicated space of 100 square feet at every MRTS/Suburban station to set up charging zones. This area would be adequate for three chargers at each of these locations. Further, the chargers would not just help power Ather electric scooters but those from rival brands as well, apart from electric cars.
