At Rygor, we want to ensure youâre kept up to date with the latest industry news and developments,
especially those that benefit your business.
Last year, our customers were concerned about the impact the new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ)
might have on their business and many werenât aware if their current vehicle would cost them more
to enter the zone.
On Monday 8 th April 2019, the Ultra-Low Emission Zone was introduced in Central London. The Mayor
of London has also recently announced a supporting scrappage scheme to help improve Londonâs air
quality crisis and support micro businesses and charities as they prepare for ULEZ.
Speaking to Rygor, Alex Williams, Transport for London's Director of City Planning, said:
âThe central London ULEZ will significantly reduce the amount of polluting vehicles driving within
central London. After one year we expect harmful NOx emissions from road transport in central
London to reduce by 45 per cent.
âWe understand the impact ULEZ could have on some micro businesses, which is why the Mayor is
launching a Â£23 million diesel scrappage scheme to help them. The scheme will ensure that micro
businesses can apply for funding to switch to cleaner vehicles and ditch the most polluting vans.â
The Ultra Low Emission Zone operates within the same area as the current Congestion Charge Zone
(CCZ), but applies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, potentially costing some
businesses thousands of pounds a week.
If your current vehicle is liable to being charged under the new ULEZ regulations, you could benefit
from an extra Â£3,500 in support for purchasing a newer, cleaner and more efficient van, as well as
Â£2,500 towards running costs if you meet certain criteria. Whatâs more, Rygor are supporting this
scheme with an exclusive offer for our customers.
