Fares and tickets from 24 July

Fares and tickets from 24 July

Over the last couple of years, we’ve made various improvements to our range of fares and tickets based on your feedback, continuing to offer the best value for money that’s possible.

In that time, we’ve introduced flexible tickets, promotional summer offers that became permanent, discounted evening tickets, and our recently launched DUO tickets to name but a few.

Unfortunately, we are now at the point where we have carefully reviewed the cost of running our services, and we are reluctantly changing the prices of some fares and tickets from 24 July due to rising costs.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly, and we have kept price rises as low as we possibly can. Some tickets, such as our singles and returns, will remain cheaper than they were prior to July 2021, and some monthly tickets will have their prices frozen on our app.

Buying tickets on the Go North East app remains the cheapest and easiest option.

 

Adult single and return fares

Most adult singles and returns will increase by 20p. There will be a new maximum single fare of £3.80, which is considerably lower than the previous maximum single fare of £5.30 which was reduced in the summer of last year.

Single journeys after 7pm will remain at a maximum of £2.

 

Day tickets

Our day tickets are available on the bus and the Go North East app, with our app offering the best value.
