The Clean Air Plan

Helping to reduce air pollution in London

More than 3.6m Londoners regularly use the Uber app, and half of the miles travelled on uberX in the capital are in hybrid or electric vehicles. But we want to do even more to help combat air pollution in the capital.

The Clean Air Plan has been designed to support the Mayor’s vision of a cleaner, healthier London. One of the key elements will be helping drivers upgrade to cleaner vehicles. And we’ve set ourselves the aim of making every car on the app in London fully electric by 2025.

From Wednesday 16 January, a Clean Air Fee of 15p per mile will be included on every trip taken through the app in London. This will only apply to miles travelled on a trip, and will not include miles travelled to your pick up location. For drivers looking to upgrade, every penny will go towards supporting their move into an electric vehicle.

You’ll always be able to see how much you’ve contributed to the Clean Air Plan from each trip in your receipt, and none of this fee will come from your driver’s fare. The money will go towards helping drivers upgrade to an electric vehicle and other clean air initiatives. Once drivers have an electric vehicle, the Clean Air Fee will then be used to support their ongoing vehicle costs.
