UK air pollution

Biggest Response To London’s Increased “T-Charge” = Shift To Public Transit

Some cities are working to quell city air pollution faster than others. UK cities are beginning to charge higher-polluting vehicles to drive into their center. As one big example, London’s “T-Charge” is increasing the cost of a journey by up to £21.50 for the highest polluting cars and vans. This charge is shifting more drivers to rail and bus services. EVs, especially small ones such as an electric smart car, provide some relief for people who need to drive — but transit is a key.
