September 22nd is Car Free Day in London. Kapten completely supports the long-term goals of this fantastic initiative, but understand it may cause some disruption for our riders and Partner Drivers on Sunday.
The map below shows the main affected areas where you won’t be able to get a Kapten to or be dropped off in (area marked in red/white), as well as those where you might find a bit more traffic than usual.
If you must travel by car on this day, we are encouraging our drivers to drive around some key hotspots, making it easier for you to find a Kapten and get you to your next destination. Here are some top tips to make it more likely to get a ride:
- Please bear in mind, it might take our Partner Drivers a bit longer to get to you due to additional traffic, so please be patient.
- If you feel a driver is taking too long, just give them a call, chances are they’ll be stuck in a bit of traffic.
- Head to one of the designated Kapten hotspots, the bigger roads are where most of our drivers will be so you’ll have a higher chance of catching a ride there.
- Don’t order from within the car free zone or request to be dropped off within it, as our drivers won’t be able to access it and you may be charged a cancellation fee.
