Summer saving fares - now extended

Last month, following the success of our £1 evening fare offer, we introduced a range of summer saving fares to help people’s money go further and get more people back on board buses, in an effort to boost the region’s local economy.

We're delighted to let you know that we're extending the offers beyond the summer, so you can continue to save across County Durham, Gateshead and the City of Sunderland.

We've also introduced new money saving fares in North Tyneside (which includes journeys into Newcastle). Discounts across the rest of the network, including our £1 evening fare, also remain.

The ticket offers are designed to offer a range of very simple headline fares with easy-to-understand fare zones that match borough and county boundaries.

Single, return, day and weekly tickets in each zone are simplified, with reduced prices elsewhere across the Go North East network, including an improved All Zones ticket offer.
