Our mission statement: 'Building for tomorrow through better transport today'
There are few people living in Tyne and Wear whose daily lives are not touched in some way by Nexus. It might be getting you to work, or taking the children to school. It might be treating you to a day out shopping or a family trip to the coast or a museum. It might be helping you enjoy a night out on the town without worrying who will be driving home.
We provide, plan and promote public transport to improve the economic prosperity of Tyne and Wear, and the daily lives of its people. We also look to the future, creating the travel networks people will want to use in decades to come.
Our plans include the Metro: all change modernisation programme, worth up to £385m over 11 years, providing a step change in comfort and reliability for our passengers. We are also improving local bus services, working with local councils and operators through the Bus Strategy to meet the needs of local people. That means making sure buses go where people want them to, and provide a safe and welcoming travel environment. And we are investing in smart travel, with the new Pop card for use on Metro and beyond to make buying a ticket simpler and more flexible.
Nexus is the Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive and administers funds on behalf of the Tyne and Wear Integrated Transport Authority. The ITA is a member of the North East Local Transport Body which decides on devolved funding from Government for major transport schemes in the region. Our task is to improve the quality of life and fortunes of everyone in Tyne and Wear, by creating better transport networks.
Look around you - the work we do won't be far away.
