How we calculate your fare

We calculate your fare to make sure you’re charged the best adult price:

  • When you tap on and tap off for one journey, we’ll work out the adult single fare for that journey and you’ll just pay the single fare. 
  • If you make additional journeys throughout the same day, your payment will be capped at an adult Day ticket price.
  • If you make additional journeys throughout the week, your price will be capped at an adult Weekly ticket price. 

It’s as easy as, well, tapping on and off!
