Reducing emissions with Uber Green
Uber Green is here, giving you the option to book 100% electric vehicles from Zone 1 and improving air quality in London. It’s the first stage in our commitment to 100% electric rides in London.
Here’s everything you need to know about Uber Green, how to book and how it makes a difference.
What is Uber Green?
Uber Green works in exactly the same way as a regular Uber. Same app, same price, same great service. The only difference is that you’ll be riding in a 100% electric vehicle - no hybrids, diesel or petrol - helping to reduce emissions and keep London’s air cleaner.
How do I book Uber Green?
Uber Green is currently available for journeys starting in Zone 1. Your destination can be anywhere, but your journey must start here. When using the Uber app in Zone 1, you’ll be able to choose Uber Green in exactly the same way you would book an UberX.
1. Open the app as usual
2. If you're in Zone 1 you'll be able to select Uber Green as a trip. You may need to scroll down
3. Tap 'Confirm Uber Green' and wait at the pick up point
Zero exhaust emissions
By choosing Uber Green, you’re helping to make London more sustainable and reducing air pollution.
Costs no more than your regular journey
Going green shouldn’t cost more, which is why choosing an Uber Green trip is just as affordable as requesting a regular UberX trip.
From Zone 1 to anywhere
Uber Green rides are available in Zone 1, but your destination can still be outside of it. We’re planning to expand this product to all of London as soon as possible.
Same trips, same simple app
Just request your ride the same way you would a regular UberX trip. Pick the Uber Green option - you might have to scroll down to see it - and you’re good to go.
Quieter, smoother trips
Electric vehicles are generally quieter, with no engine vibrations, for more comfortable journeys.
Helping drivers to go electric
Uber Green aims to further support drivers making the switch to an electric vehicle. This builds on the financial support available to drivers through the Clean Air Plan, in place since 2019, and Uber’s commitments to invest in charging infrastructure.
