Take the kids for free, all day, every day
Up to three children aged 11 and under can travel for free on the Shields Ferry when accompanied by a fare-paying adult - see full details here.
Please note payment can be made by card only.
One single (concessionary) journey on the Shields Ferry costs 60p or you can travel all day for £1.10 with a Child All-day Ticket (on all modes of transport) - you will need an Under 16 Pop card to buy both of these tickets.
You'll pay the commercial child fare, which is **90p for a single journey or **£1.70 for all day travel when you buy a Metro Child Day Ticket. However, if you are, or look like you are, 14 or over, you will be charged the adult fare. So if you live in Tyne and Wear and are under 16, apply for your Under 16 Pop Card now to be entitled to pay concessionary child fares.
Accompanied children aged under five travel free on all public transport in Tyne and Wear.
