TFL increasing charges - beware

I’m sorry to report that as recovery begins TfL has decided to punish car use with these charges -

o        The daily charge will increase from £11.50 to £15 per day (£17.50 for those paying during the three days after the day of travel)

o        TfL are extending charging hours to 07:00 to 22:00 from the current hours of 07:00 to 18:00, to reflect peak traffic hours during the epidemic. TfL will also operate the scheme seven days a week and all year around except Christmas Day

o        TfL will remove Auto Pay and Fleet Auto Pay £1 daily discount

o        The residents’ discount scheme will close to new applications from 1 August. In response to issues raised by stakeholders and the public, applications received up to and including 31 July will be accepted. Existing discount holders will continue to receive the discount for their currently registered vehicle and any replacements

o        TfL are expanding the NHS patient reimbursement scheme and creating new reimbursement arrangements for local authorities and charities providing services in response to the pandemic
