About Bluelib

Parking fees may apply at off-street locations, whilst parking at on-street charge points will generally be free. However, please make sure to check the signage by the charge point to know whether any parking charges do apply.

Bluelib is a network of charging points in Lille European Metropolis. You have the possibility to subscribe to a 1 year membership or, for non-subscribers, to use charging points on the spot. The Pass Pass card is compatible with Bluelib service.

From a landline it will be the price of a local call. Please check with your mobile operator for call costs if you are calling from a mobile.

To subscribe to Bluelib, all you need is a compatible EV, and a payment card. You can sign up for membership here. You do not need any documents. Once your subscription has been confirmed, you will receive a membership card which will enable you to access all of the Bluelib charging points and a mandate of SEPA credit transfer.

We accept debit and credit VISA, MASTERCARD and MAESTRO cards.

You can park at a charging point station as long as necessary. You must know that you will be billed even if your electric vehicle is already fully charged.

Bluelib allows you to charge your electric vehicle using Bluelib charge points around Lille European Metropolis.

To access service, you simply need to register to receive a membership card that will allow you to use the charge points across the metropolis and park at any of the spaces in our network. Please note that parking charges and session fees might apply.

Once you have subscribed and received your membership card, you can reserve our new charge points up to 40 minutes in advance directly from our mobile app or from your online account.

If you have more than one vehicle, you will need to set up an individual membership per vehicle as you can only register one electric vehicle per membership.

Memberships are only allowed in one person's name and associated with one email address, so we are unable to issue a second membership card for a same account.

The rules governing Bluelib parking bays depend on where they are located. Some bays may allow both electric and non-electric vehicles to park. Please check the signage at the charge point to confirm what regulations apply. Whilst we will make sure we do everything we can to keep Bluelib bays exclusive to electric vehicles where it is possible, it is the responsibility of the municipal police to enforce the parking regulations. Please report any vehicles illegally occupying dedicated electric vehicle bays to your municipal police.

Charging points

Charge points are designed such that no power will go through the cable as long as they are not plugged in at both ends. We do not consider that there is more risk when plugging it when it is raining.

You can check the compatibility of your car with Bluelib charge points on the UKEVSE website. For further information, please call the customer service at 01 85 15 15 99

As different charge points will have different procedures, the easiest way to find out how to use a charge point is by following the instructions on the screen.

There are two different types of charge points in the Bluelib network. The majority are double headed T2 of 7kWh each, and some of them are T2/EF plugs of 7 kWh and 1.8kWh. They should charge your car from 0% to 75% in 3 or 9 hours respectively. We recommend you to check the compatibility of your vehicle with this type of charge point.

Serial number are at the back of the charging point. This number usually starts by 986 followed by 000 and a further 4 digits, eg 9860001234.

The easiest way to find information about the locations and compatibility of the charge points is on our station map or on our mobile app.

All of our charge points are marked with the Bluelib logo.
