London FA Club Guide to ULEZ expansion
The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) is expanding across all London boroughs from 29th August 2023.
We asked how this would affect you, what support you need and the things your club will do. We have put together this guidance document to try and help your club adapt to the expansion of ULEZ.
Emissions and locations
To see if your vehicle meets the emissions standards, use TFL’s vehicle checker.
The link below is a map which shows the new ULEZ boundary and the area it will cover. You can toggle the map to view the Congestion Charge zone, current inner London ULEZ and the new London-wide ULEZ from 29 August 2023.
ULEZ support offers
To help make the switch to cleaner forms of transport, there are also exclusive ULEZ support offers for successful scrappage scheme applicants, as well as offers for all Londoners to take advantage of, whether eligible for a scrappage payment or not.
Discounts and exemptions
To help disabled Londoners and community transport providers prepare for the expansion, the existing ULEZ grace periods (temporary exemptions) have been extended, and new grace periods have been introduced.
Alternative ways to get to games and training
Walk or Cycle: London is a very walkable city and has many cycle paths, so consider walking or cycling to get around. It's not only free, but it's also a great way to improve your physical and mental health while seeing more of the county.
Use Public Transport: The Tube, buses, and trains are all great options for getting around London without paying the ULEZ charge.
Informal lift sharing (for example carpooling) is arranged directly with friends, neighbours or colleagues who share a similar route. Create a WhatsApp group with your team or club and get sharing. Even better if you can use a ULEZ compliant vehicle.
Open lift sharing schemes (such as BlaBlaCar, GoCarShare or Liftshare) are available to the public to register and offer lifts through a platform that connects drivers with passengers.
Closed lift sharing schemes (for example, Liftshare, Jambusters or KINTO) are set up for a particular employer, area, or group, such as an industrial estate or business park. Only members of the group or staff of the organisation can join and connect with others to share lifts.
