Guide to parking

Metro’s park-and-ride facilities make using the system easy if you don’t live within walking distance of a station.

There are major car parks at 10 suburban stations letting you switch easily from car to Metro to avoid city centre traffic jams and trouble finding a parking space.

Metro trains run at least every 12 minutes during the day from all stations with park and ride, and more frequently at peak times from Northumberland Park, Regent Centre, and Heworth.

Stations north of the Tyne offer parking for just £1 a day; charges vary south of the Tyne – please see individual stations for details.
