To encourage drivers of older, more polluting taxis to remove their vehicles from the fleet, Transport for London has launched a de-commissioning grant for taxis between 10 and 15 years old.  Owners of these taxis can receive up to £5,000 towards a new ZEC taxi.  In addition, a £7,500 plug-in grant is available, from OLEV, off the purchase price of a new ZEC taxi.
