To help taxi drivers meet the costs of these proposals TfL has allocated £40 million for financial assistance in its current Business Plan. OLEV is also making a minimum £20 million available to support the uptake of ultra-low emission taxis. This will be available to all taxi drivers, including those with disabilities or caring responsibilities.
