Uber Drivers:Driving in the Congestion Charge zone
What you need to know
Mareeg.com-Thank you for your patience while we worked towards a solution to support you with the changes to the Congestion Charge zone. After consulting with drivers, today we’re announcing the Central London Fee.
What is the Central London Fee?
From Monday 8 April, £1 will be added on your behalf to every trip that starts, ends or passes through the Congestion Charge zone, with every pound going straight to your Uber account. See details of how the Central London Fee works below.
The fee will apply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This fee will apply to all UberX, UberXL, UberEXEC, UberLUX and UberASSIST trips.
It will not apply to trips taken on Pool. Instead, a £1 contribution to drivers will be made initially by Uber to each Pool trip you take, until we are able to build a permanent solution. This will go directly to your Uber account.
Plan ahead by paying the Congestion Charge with Auto Pay
The quickest, easiest and most affordable way to pay the Congestion Charge is by registering for Congestion Charge Auto Pay. A discount of £1 is applied when you register for Auto Pay, meaning the Congestion Charge would be £10.50. Setting up Auto Pay will help you avoid unnecessary penalty charge notices.
