We’re back, BETTER than ever.
1 month ago
We’ve now reintroduced full timetables on almost all our services – we’re back BETTER than ever, right in time for the country starting to unlock.
Early morning key worker journeys also remain, as do the extra buses that are running for school and college students to help with social distancing.
You can view timetables by heading to Go North East’s timetables and maps section, selecting your service and changing the calendar to your desired date.
We’re greener, cleaner, smarter, in fact we’re game-changing... so there’s never been a better time to get on board!
We care about clean air, and we are on a mission to bring lower emissions to the region. We’re already introducing big improvements, such as our state-of-the-art Voltra electric buses, and we’re seeing Euro 6 technology being rolled out across much of our fleet.
Bus travel has a low carbon footprint by its very nature. Our buses run on green diesel and we're working to make then even greener, with 61% now meeting even better enhanced environmentally friendly standards and more on the way.
Our cleaning teams work to keep you safe. We make sure all touch points are regularly cleansed, and we’ve also added hand sanitiser pumps to every bus. So, you can travel comfortably knowing we’re taking good care of you.
Technology is changing the way you travel, you can take control with our live bus times which are available on both our website and app – you can also check in advance how busy your journey is going to be using our When2Travel planning tool.
On the day, you can then check real-time information with our ‘how many seats’ feature, that shows if the bus is ‘quiet’, ‘moderate’ or ‘busy’ and also shows if the bus is a single or double-decker. It also lets you know what features are on board, such as free Wi-Fi and USB charging.
Everything we do is aimed at making your journey the absolute best it can be, and we’re all about putting the WOW factor into bus travel. We’re on a journey to change the game as you know it.
Buses are back to full timetables and we’re back, BETTER than ever – we can’t wait to welcome you on board.
