The future of any city-region depends on the best transport networks to allow its people to move around easily, to smooth the wheels of business, to let the streets breathe.

Nexus is pursuing three major programmes aimed at improving public transport, on behalf of the North East Combined Authority:

The Bus Strategy, a programme to deliver three key local policy aims; arresting the fall in bus passenger numbers, improving accessibility and providing greater value for public spending.

Smart Ticketing, a programme to bring the whole of North East England a single smart technology for transport, education and other local services, in partnership with local councils and transport companies.

Metro Futures, our ambitious vision for the decades ahead, including the introduction of a new train fleet, continue investment in vital infrastructure, and exploring the potential to expand the reach of Metro and local rail.
