Industrial Action by Arriva North East

As Arriva North East bus drivers are expected to strike from Sunday 6 to Saturday 12 January, our customers can be reassured that all Go North East services will be running normally on all our routes. 

In addition, we'll be adding extra capacity on some services to help keep people moving. This will include bigger buses on some of our Wear Xpress routes from Peterlee to Sunderland and additional journeys on our Castles Express X21 route between Bishop Auckland and Durham/Framwellgate Moor (for New College Durham and University Hospital of North Durham). 

Our Castles Express X21 and Angel 21 services will continue to provide frequent journeys for customers from Durham and Chester-le-Street to Newcastle.
