Newcastle Upon Tyne - Clean Air Zone

From 30th January 2023, a Clean Air Zone has been introduced in Newcastle city centre.

This means if you enter while driving the minibus you there will be a charge of £12.50 per vehicle per day which you will be liable to pay if you have hired the minibus.

If you do need to travelling in a Clean Air Zone charge you will need to do this within seven days of your journey. 

For example, if your journey is on Monday, you must pay your CAZ charge by the end of the following Sunday. 

Payments should be made using the national payment system - failure to do so within 7 days of your travel will result in a £50 charge.

There are other Clean Air zones around the UK, further information can be found at the Breathe Clean Air website below:
