Details of the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan's 'Pay as You Drive' plan which could replace the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and Congestion Charge have been shared in a new interview. 

The proposal would see drivers in London pay depending on the time of day, amount of passengers and the distance they drive in London. 

Speaking to the Financial Times, Khan revealed details on how the idea might work sharing that it could be a long time until the plan was implemented.

The 'Pay as You Drive' scheme would replace the Congestion Charge which costs £15 a day and the ULEZ charge of £12.50 a day.

In the interview with the Financial Times, the Mayor said the scheme sounds exciting but might not take place for a long time, sharing: 

"Road use charging is interesting . . . If you get rid of the congestion charge, get rid of ULEZ, get rid of road tax, and charge people depending on how many miles they drive, how polluting their vehicle is, what time of day they’re driving, are there alternatives related to public transport, how many people are in the car, that’s potentially quite exciting.

"The problem is the technology’s quite a long way off.”

Discussing the upcoming ULEZ expansion, Khan shared that he thinks it's not a "big thing on most people’s minds."

Adding that it is instead "a big thing on a small number of people’s minds . . . In outer London, 85 per cent of vehicles are compliant and half of Londoners don’t even have a car.”
