Planning your journey

  • Use our interactive Live Travel Map to see the next bus, Metro, train and Shields Ferry times from every stop and station in Tyne and Wear and to plan your journey. Bus times are Real-Time where available - which means it's the time the bus is expected to actually leave your stop.
  • If you know the number of the bus you need, click here to find the timetable.
  • Metro timetables are here

Tickets and passes

Finding the best ticket for you will depend on what type of transport you use.

  • You can get discounts on adult fares when you're a student.
    • If you're only travelling by bus, information about day tickets is here, or season tickets is here.
    • Click here for Metro season tickets.
    • Or if you're travelling by both bus and Metro click here.
  • If a season ticket isn't for you, Pop Pay As You Go might be. Find out more here. And if you're still 18, and travelling by Metro, get reduced fares with Pop blue.

And of course these passes aren't just valid for getting to and from college or university - you can use them at any time to get to nights out, a part-time job, go shopping - whatever you want.
