Have your say on the proposed changes to the Congestion Charge


Reviewing the Congestion Charging Scheme

Transport for London (TfL) regularly reviews the Congestion Charging scheme to ensure that it remains effective in reducing traffic and congestion in central London as well as improving the operation of the scheme.

We are proposing to make changes to the Congestion Charging scheme. These changes include:

  • Providing the option to pay CC Auto Pay accounts by direct debit
  • Enabling discount applications and renewals to be made online
  • Increasing the daily Congestion Charge
  • Changing the NHS Reimbursement Scheme to allow refunds for CC Auto Pay payments
  • Providing the option for customers to amend the date of a pre-paid charge on the day of travel
  • Minor Congestion Charge Scheme Order changes


About the Congestion Charging Scheme

The Congestion Charge applies to all vehicles being driven within the Congestion Charging zone from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, unless they are exempt or registered with Transport for London (TfL) for a discount. The Congestion Charge is payable in advance or before midnight on the day of travel.
