What are we consulting about?
Planned changes to the Nexus funded trip on service 44 in Newcastle.
Why are we considering changes to these services?
As we emerge from the pandemic, travel patterns have changed. We recently completed a review of the services we fund in Newcastle to ensure that they continue to meet the needs of communities and provide good value for money. This review identified low levels of demand for the Saturday early morning trip that we currently fund on service 44.
What changes are we proposing?
- The Saturday 0603 trip from Dinnington to Newcastle via Hazlerigg (0608) and Regent Centre (0619) will be cancelled due to low demand.
How would customers/residents be affected by these changes?
The alternative first buses on a Saturday towards Newcastle city centre provided by Arriva North East (based on December 2021 timetables) would be from:
- Dinnington at 0703 (service 45)
- Hazlerigg at 0808 (service 44)
- Regent Centre at 0631 (service X21)
This consultation is now closed.
All feedback received on or before 12 January 2022 will be taken into consideration.
The results of the consultation will appear here once it has been evaluated.
