Blackcab drivers will stage a protest against TfL's licensing conditioning of Uber drivers.
United Cabbies Group stage a demonstration starting at the Aldwych and extending to Ludgate Circus in London until 6pm.
Families and partners of taxi drivers are planning a protest this afternoon over what they say is a lack of proper regulation of cab companies.
The demonstration takes place today at 2pm outside Windsor House.
Protestors are calling for proper monitoring of drivers and a limit to the number of taxis on the City's roads.
All black-cabs could soon take card payments in a new initiative by Transport for London to help the capital's taxi drivers compete with cashless rivals Uber.
There is currently no requirement for taxis to accept card payments, and only around half of drivers do, despite 83% of passengers preferring the option to be able to pay by card, according to a recent survey.
TFL said it will hold a consultation with drivers and passengers, but stressed there is no intention to stop taxis accepting cash as a payment option.
Card payments have become a central part of the lives of Londoners over the past few years - something that has only increased since the introduction of contactless payment.
The announcement comes just a day after the release of film capturing a bicycling London Mayor Boris Johnson in a four-letter tirade with a black-cab driver.
