To help improve air quality, an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be implemented within central London from 8 April 2019. Most vehicles, including cars, vans, and trucks will need to meet new, tighter exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or pay a daily charge to travel within the ULEZ.
The London congestion charge and T-charge scheme is in operation Monday to Friday between the hours of 7am and 6pm. The zone stretches from City Road in the East to Park Lane and from Marylebone Road to Elephant and Castle.
