In the Uber fleet will be electric cars only
The decision was taken to support the plan of the city authorities of London that they need to make the transition to electric vehicles.
From the first days of the coming year the company will collect a surcharge from taxi passengers to enable drivers to purchase environmentally friendly car by 2021.
The announcement was voiced last week by the Chairman of the company. Environmental fee that is paid by taxi passengers per kilometer of movement is equal to 15 pence. This means that travel in these vehicles will become more expensive for the sum of 45 pence.
More than 20 thousand taxi drivers will receive the extra money to buy a car that runs on electricity. This will reduce the amount of harmful emissions from urban transport.
Drivers who do not want to switch to this mode of transport will be required to pay a tax for city riding, and will be deprived of all available bonuses.
