New Feature: How busy is Metro
The Tyne and Wear Metro app has been updated to help customers identify quieter times on Metro, allowing them to make informed decisions about when to travel - for those who have the choice. The changes allow app users to view a rating of how busy trains are from a station and lets them provide their own rating of how busy their train was. Where live ratings have not been made, an average rating from previous weeks is shown.
To access the information, go to the main menu of the Tyne and Wear Metro app, select ‘More’, then you will see the option ‘How busy is the Metro’. From here you can view the data received for each station and can also submit your own personal rating.
