The congestion charge for people driving into central London has now increased by 30 per cent.
Estimated to be in force for a year, the charge has surged from £11.50 to £15 and will now be imposed everyday from 07:00-22:00.
It is one of the conditions of a recent £1.6bn bailout deal between Transport for London and the government.
Withal, the emergency services, NHS and care workers will still have the charge reimbursed.
Residents applying for a discount have until 1 August to submit their applications.
TfL stated data showed the number of cars in the zone was the same as before lockdown began in March
