Uber recently announced its plan to charge customers in London an extra 15p per mile from early 2019 onwards. Uber state the reason for this extra charge to be its desire to help TFL reduce pollution in the Capital. It plans to give the cash to London drivers to help them purchase electric cars, in light of the recent hybrid and electric car government grant cuts.
There are a number of problems with Uber’s plan to get half of its London drivers electric by 2021:
Therefore the question must be asked: is Uber’s new electric car charge a genuine move towards a less-polluted London, or it is a back-handed scheme to raise its fees by the back door? Alternatively, by publicly supporting TFL, does Uber expect that renewing the 15 month probationary licence it was given (after a widely reported court case) to continue operating in London in June 2018 will be easier?
