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.
You will be able to use the recharging stations until the end of your subscription, i.e. 25 November 2020.

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.
We will store your personal information in accordance with our personal data management policy and our legal obligations.
