18 Jan Petition: Stop TfL Charging Private Hire Vehicles Congestion Charge
Zoom.taxi are encouraging our customers to support the LPHCA’s petition to stop Transport for London charging private hire vehicles Congestion Charge when driving in Central London.
“Private Hire Vehicles being Congestion Charged will result in draconian fare increases to what is currently an affordable mode of door-to-door transport.
“Initially our campaign was focused on London, where our petition against the implementation of Congestion Charging PHVs had over 10,000 signatures in the first 6 months, but we have since devolved our petition and campaign from London-based, to PHVs nationally,” say the LPHCA.
Please sign the petition here.

Zoom.taxi believe that this tax will be passed onto passengers because private hire drivers do not have the margins to be able to absorb the extra cost. We do not think that mobility should be compromised particularly given the need people with disabilities or elderly and sick people have for a vibrant private hire market in London and around the country.
