Cap'n, this is a good alternative.  It is espeically nice because the driver does not have to do anything.  I wonder, though, about billing.  For the school, it is only their vehicles.  I assume that the reciver units could have an ID and the charging units could communicate that back when a vehcile comes up to them. 

The more conventional charging units do have a high voltage option, if the vehicle supports it, to charge the vehicle in a short period of time (I think it is 15 min.).  I don't know how many of these are deployed or how many vehicles can support them, though. This inductive system would be great if the devices were widely installed.  Perhaps they could even be installed at stop lights, etc.
