To make choices about transport people need the right information about services times and tickets in the format of their choice, from the internet through to timetables at bus stops.
We operate six Nexus TravelShops at or close to major interchanges in Tyne and Wear. All sell a wide range of holidays and tickets for local and national travel, including through telephone bookings. Travelsales income totals more than £17m a year, with TravelShops selling 80% of combined bus-Metro and other multi-modal tickets in Tyne and Wear. Our TravelShops also serve an important role in providing tourist information.
There are more than 6,500 bus stops in Tyne and Wear and every one has its own individual timetable, printed and displayed by Nexus. We are introducing real time information and SMS text information technology at a growing number of stops.
In all we produce more than two million items of printed publicity every year, in the form of timetables, maps, and leaflets about specific tickets and promotions. We have more than 100 distribution outlets, including TravelShops.
