Bridge Card

The Bridge Card scheme is in place across the north east region in order to assist passengers in bringing any concerns they have about their journey to the attention of the driver discretely when boarding. The Bridge Card lets the driver know that you may need extra help during a journey whether because of age, disability, illness or lack of confidence.

  • Bridge Cards can be obtained from Go North East by calling 0191 420 5050 or from your local authority.
  • If you would like the driver to wait until you have sat down before departing or if you have any other concerns, please feel free to ask as you get on the bus or show your Bridge Card if you have one.
