TfL has been investigating the potential of tag and beacon technology through application in the Central London congestion charging scheme. This investigation includes technology trials, taking place in a small area of the London Borough of Southwark, with the full cooperation of the local authority. However, it must be stressed that no decision has yet been taken as to whether there will be any changes to the technology, or the charging policies used to operate the scheme.
