Tariffs

There are three standard tariff periods, depending on the day of the week and the time of day you travel.

If a journey goes through more than one tariff, the new charge will be applied from the start time of the new tariff.

The meter automatically adds a charge based on time for any part of the journey when the speed drops below 10.4mph. Other extras may be included in the final fare.

Tariff 1

  • For each additional 123.9 metres or 26.6 seconds (whichever is reached first), or part thereof, if the distance travelled is less than 9656.1 metres there is a charge of 20p
