Transport for London
The T-Charge (Toxicity Charge) starts next week on Monday 23 October 2017. This is part of the commitment by the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, and TfL to help clean up London’s dangerously polluted air, which contributes to thousands of early deaths each year in London, and impacts our health over the course of our lives – leading to smaller lungs in our children, and greater risk of dementia and stroke when we get older.
As of Monday 23 October, older cars, vans, minibuses, buses, coaches and heavy goods vehicles driven in the central London Congestion Charge Zone will need to meet new minimum emission standards, or pay a £10 daily T-Charge. This will be in addition to the Congestion Charge and will operate from 07:00 to 18:00, Monday to Friday.
You can check if your vehicle meets the required standard with our vehicle compliance checker.
If your vehicle does not meet the emission standards and it is registered for a discount or exemption, you will automatically be registered for a T-Charge discount or exemption. If you are registered for Auto Pay, you will automatically be charged for the T-Charge.
Alternatively, you can avoid the charge by taking an alternative means of transport.
