A new company installing POD points across Manchester. I haven't found their own website yet.
Up to 25 pods could eventually be built under plans being drawn up by the Manchester Electric Car Company (MECC), a new firm set up to run the project.

A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station....

Never, ever, read the comments on print-news websites. The same applies to YouTube. They are all mad.

And STILL no sign of a website or other contact point. The DfT website is quite telling:

The Government is supporting eight Plugged-In Places:

* East of England (link)
* Greater Manchester (NO LINK)
* London (link)
* Midlands (link)
* Milton Keynes (link)
* North East (link)
* Northern Ireland (link)
* Scotland (NO LINK)
