Coronavirus updates

Go North East bus services are running to emergency timetables – catering for key worker journeys and essential travel only.

We are continually reviewing the use of each journey that we operate with bus use now at an all time low as the region follows the government's travel advice.

Changes from Saturday 11 April

From Saturday 11 April, in line with the patterns of use we are now seeing, there will be some changes to services 2, 6, 10, 10A, 20, 21, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 28B, 29, 33A, 34A, 38, 45, 49, 67, 69, 78, 448 (St Roberts School), 700, 702, M6, Q1, Q2, V9, X5, X10, X21, X30 and X71, with existing journeys for key workers maintained.

Full details and individual timetables for each service can be found further down the page. 

Easter buses

Most buses will run to the same timetables on Good Friday, Saturday 11 April, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Buses which will not run on Good Friday or Easter Monday will say "NBH" at the top of the column in the timetable – you can view each timetable further down the page.

Please note that Durham Bus Station is now closed, so buses are departing from the top of North Road near the Heart Foundation shop.

Everyone’s health and safety is our top priority, so please help us to help you by…
