There are three standard tariff periods, and when a certain tariff applies depends on the day of the week and the time of day you travel.
The tariff rate can change (e.g. from Tariff 1 to 2, 2 to 3 or 3 to 1) if a journey starts when one tariff rate applies but is still going when the next Tariff rate starts.
The meter automatically adds a charge based on time for any part of a taxi journey when the speed drops below 10.4mph. Other extra charges may be included in the final fare.
