CAZ charge for buses in 2021

A Clean Air Zone (CAZ) charge on vehicles — aimed at improving air quality in Bath, Somerset — is now set to begin on Monday 15th March 2021.

The scheme is England’s first CAZ outside London and was due to start in the city centre in October but the coronavirus pandemic delayed it.

The most-polluting commercial vehicles, such as buses and lorries, will be subject to the charge but private cars will be exempt.

The scheme will charge a fee of £100 for buses and HGVs (heavy goods vehicles) and £9 for high-emission commercial vans.
