The Shields Ferry
14 May 2021

The Shields Ferry is covid- secure and ready to welcome customers back as lockdown restrictions continue to ease. 

The Government’s instruction to minimise travel will end from Monday, 17 May.

People are being advised to travel safely and follow covid-secure guidelines when making a journey. 

A short video, featuring some of the Ferry crew, highlights the Covid-secure measures which have been put in place on the cross-Tyne service. 

These include signage on social distancing, face coverings and hand sanitiser points. Cash payments are no longer accepted on the ferry, with passengers asked to pay by bank card or Pop card. 

The ferry has returned to a full timetable, with services running after 6.30pm on weekdays and on Saturdays.  The last crossing of the day from North Shields will be at 8pm Monday to Wednesday, and 10.50pm Thursday to Saturday. For full timetable details see: Timetable | 

The ferry is cycle and dog friendly, and the crew are ready to welcome you all back. 



Welcome aboard
