A hike in the London congestion charge is set to take place next month, the first price rise since 2011.
A 15 per cent rise will come into force taking the controversial charge from £10 to £11.50.
Those who use the auto pay system and fleet customers will pay £10.50 a day, Transport for London has announced.
TfL said the increase will allow customer improvements for next year, such as direct debit payments for auto pay customers and online discount applications for NHS patients.
The weekday charge was first introduced by Ken Livingstone in February, 2003, at £5 per day.
Since it was introduced more than £1.2 billion of revenue has been re-invested in transport.
Garrett Emmerson, TfL’s chief operating officer for surface transport, said: “These changes will ensure the congestion charge remains effective in managing congestion in central London.”
