Our fares for journeys within the local area are metered at the rate set by our licensing authority, North Norfolk District Council.
The basic minimum charge is £3.30 which covers any journey up to 9/10 of a mile. Beyond that distance, the meter advances in 10 pence steps at a rate equivalent to £1.80 per mile.
The table on the right shows the approximate one-way fares from central Stalham to some popular destinations.
If you ask us to wait before continuing a journey, the meter advances in 10 pence steps at a rate equivalent to 55 pence for each 2 minutes waiting time, after the first 2 minutes.
For journeys commencing between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. the above charges are increased by 50%. Although the official tariff permits an increase of 25% in the base fares on a Sunday, we believe that this makes the fares unreasonably high, and we charge only the standard rate for all Sunday journeys commencing between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m.
We do not apply a separate charge per piece of luggage.
If you know the distance of your journey, you can use the calculator on the left to get an estimate of the standard metered fare. Enter the mileage, using a decimal point if necessary, and if you want us to wait and then take you back as described above enter the estimated waiting time. You may also enter a waiting time if you need to break your journey part way, e.g. to stop for a few minutes to make a delivery. Use the calculate button after making any changes to see the fare.
Please note that the figure given is only an estimate and the exact fare charged by the meter may be slightly different depending upon the precise distance, whether there are delays in traffic, and so on.
If you are unable to use the above calculator, or wish to view the fares for all distances within the local area, then please see our Fare chart, which sets out the standard metered fares for all such journeys.
