Minicabs including Uber to pay London congestion charge
TfL Private hire vehicles, including Uber and minicabs, will have to pay the Transport for London congestion charge. Under new plans by TfL, the vehicles will no longer be exempt from the daily £11.50 rate for driving in central London. In the first phase, only zero-emission vehicles will still be exempt from paying the congestion charge - which was introduced in 2003. TfL said since the charge began 15 years ago, the number of vehicles entering central London each day has decreased by about 30%. The announcement follows a consultation which TfL said received 10,000 responses. According to the mayor, the rise of hailing apps like Uber has led to a huge increase in private hire vehicles driving round waiting for work.
