Uber Adds a ‘Clean Air Fee’ in London to Help Drivers Upgrade to Electric Cars

London residents who use Uber will have to pay an extra 15 pence ($0.19) per mile under the ride-hail company’s new Clean Air plan. The surcharge will go toward helping Uber drivers switch from dirty, fossil fuel burning cars to cleaner, battery-electric versions — with the goal of having all cars on the app be fully electric in London by 2025.

Uber says the amount of money drivers will receive toward the cost of an electric vehicle will be based on the number of miles they have driven on the app. For example, a driver using the app for an average of 40 hours per week could expect around $3,865 in two years’ time and $5,787 in three year.
