Wearside and Tyneside are linked by fast Northern Rail trains, giving access to the heart of Sunderland and Newcastle city centres.
Every hour on the half hour, until mid-evening, trains leave both cities, calling at Heworth Interchange, also providing access to Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, the MetroCentre and Hexham. Rail services between Sunderland and Newcastle are funded by Nexus.
