Example tariff configurations for a four-tariff system

In these examples, four tariffs are used to cover the entire year (there are no time periods that do not have an associated tariff).

Configuration 1: four tariffs with weekdays and weekends

Tariff Type Start date End date Start time End time
1 Weekend June 21 December 20 00:00 23:59
2 Weekend December 21 June 20 00:00 23:59
3 Weekday June 21 December 20 00:00 23:59
4 Weekday December 21 June 20 00:00 23:59
NOTE: The end time of 23:59 is actually 23:59:59, or just before midnight.

All weekend days fall into one of two different tariffs, depending on the date. All weekdays fall into one of two different tariffs, depending on the date. This configuration does not use tariffs based on the time of day, or any day types other than weekend or weekday.

Example dates and corresponding tariffs:

  • Friday, June 29 = tariff 3

  • Sunday, November 28th = tariff 1

Configuration 2: one season for weekends, with off-peak and shoulder hours, two seasons for weekdays, with shoulder hours

Tariff Type Start date End date Start time End time
1 Every day January 1 December 31 23:00 04:59
2 Weekdays May 1 September 20 00:00 22:59
3 Weekdays October 1 April 30 05:00 22:59
4 Weekends January 1 December 31 05:00 22:59

All days have a tariff applied between 23:00 and 04:59, corresponding to off-peak hours. All weekend days have a tariff applied from 05:00 to 22:59, corresponding to shoulder hours. All weekdays fall into one of two seasons (summer or winter), and have two tariffs applied throughout the day.

Example dates and corresponding tariffs:

  • Wednesday, March 21, 08:00 = tariff 3

  • Tuesday, January 10, 21:00 = tariff 3

  • Sunday, June 24, 14:00 = tariff 4

  • Friday, August 17, 00:00 = tariff 1
