We know how important it is right now to make things easier, not harder. That's why we've been working with the NHS and ExCel centre to temporarily expand our Zipzone for NHS workers. Now NHS workers can pick up and drop off a Flex car on a section of roads north of the Nightingale Hospital (ExCel centre). Please see our app for precise locations. NHS staff also get to 50% off journeys too.
When ending your Flex trip, the car needs to be parked in accordance to the below guidelines and within the Zipzone (the blue shaded area on the map shown in the app's reservation screen).
Other places you can't park Flex cars
When you end your Flex trip, you cannot park in any of the following bays:
- Car Club Only bays (these are for Roundtrip cars)
- Disabled Bays
- Suspended Bays
- Bays with an upcoming suspension
- Loading Bays
- Restricted Bays (these are marked as having hourly or daily restrictions)
- Business Permit Holders Bays
- Yellow lines, red routes, junction boxed, zig-zag lines, pedestrian crossings and all other nationally restricted areas
- Housing Estates and Private Roads/Lands and Private Car Parks.
- Any location on the Transport for London (TFL) Road Network. That's essentially any major A-roads in and out of London.
- Parking sections in Part-Time bus lanes
- Selected streets or areas as defined by the borough council
It's very important you check the type of bay you are parking in at the end of your trip. You will be liable for any fines or impounding charges caused by the improper parking of a Flex car.
