Further increases to services from Saturday 5 September

4 weeks ago Fri 21st Aug 2020

Back to school safely

Most services are already running to timetables similar to their pre-coronavirus times, and we’re making further increases from Saturday 5 September to help support local shops, businesses, leisure venues, schools and colleges.

Services will return to their normal evening and Sunday frequencies, making it even easier to reconnect with the faces and places you love.

You can view all the new timetables in our timetables and maps section – simply select your service and change the calendar to your desired date.

From the same date, there will also be some changes to some services and the reintroduction of others that haven’t been running recently.

X9 | X10

  • From Saturday 5 September, we’re introducing coaches to the service. From the change date there will be some temporary coaches running on the service until the newer coaches arrive.
  • There will also be a change to stops in Newcastle - the services will no longer serve Eldon Square Bus Station, instead using the bus stop opposite St Andrew’s Church, near The Gate.
