Uber Going Electric

Uber is planning to add a surcharge to all fares booked via its app in London to help its drivers buy electric vehicles.

The fee, expected to be 15p per mile, will be introduced “early” in 2019 and for drivers working 40 hours per week , could get around £1500 a year through this top up.

This green policy hopes to raise over £200m over the next few years allowing drivers to swap to electric and this extra fee would add less that fifty pence to the average city fare.
