Uber introduces 15p per mile "clean air fee"

Geoff Riley

16th January 2019

Uber is adding a clean air fee of 15p per mile to every trip taken in London. The current per mile fare is £1.25. The aim of the clean air fee is to help raise up to £200 million to support Uber drivers who are switching to electric vehicles. The move is expected to increase the cost of an average trip using Uber by around 45p.

By the end of 2021, Uber wants 20,000 cars in London to be fully electric. There are currently 45,000 Uber drivers working in London. More details can be found here.
