London Congestion Charge

The London Congestion Charge, was introduced by the then mayor of London, Ken Livingstone in February 2003 with the aim of reducing traffic congestion in London. Initially £5, the price was increased to £8 per day in July 2005, £10 in January 2011 and now the daily charge is £11.50.

Paid by drivers travelling within the Congestion Charge Zone in London, it operates between 7am and 6pm, Monday-Friday. There is no charge on weekends, public holidays, between Christmas Day and New Year's Day inclusive. Discounted passes are available for regular users and residents.
