London Congestion Charge reintroduced with a price rise

London Congestion Charge Re-introduced

From Monday 18th May 2020, the Congestion Charge for central London has been reintroduced and from the 22nd June 2020 there will be a price rise.

Transport for London (TfL) required emergency funding to keep the vital tube and bus services from being withdrawn and the reintroduction of the Congestion Charge is to help fund this bailout.

The Congestion Charge has also been temporarily extended to between 7am and 10pm and will now be applicable 7 days per week. All of the new measures will be closely monitored and reviewed later on in the year.

Price Increase for the Congestion Charge

Along with the extended hours, from the 22nd June 2020 the congestion charge will increase from £11.50 to £15.00, this is to encourage low emissions and the recent air quality which has improved dramatically since the Covid-19 lockdown.

This includes the Congestion Charge Auto-pay system which will affect fleet users and their vehicles who enter the zone in Central London, it will also have an impact on black cabs and Uber drivers.

Other important changes in London

There will be a number of other changes in the London area which include:

  • Children will no longer be able to travel for free across the TfL network.
  • More cycle and walking streets/lanes will appear in London
  • Low-emission zones and ultra-low-emission zones will also be reintroduced
  • Reimbursement scheme for NHS workers
  • You will no longer be able to pay for a fare on a bus to protect drivers
