Transfares are tickets that can be used for a single journey for travel between Go North East and Metro services in Tyne & Wear.

You can use any Go North East bus in Tyne and Wear (except our Night Buses which have an N prefix) to make a bus journey and then complete your journey by either Metro or by Shields Ferry.

Alternatively, you can board the Metro at any station on the system, transfer to a Go North East bus at any other station and complete the journey.

Please note that two bus journeys are not permitted, except in Washington between our 85 and 86 services changing at Galleries to 82, 82A or 4 to access Metro at Heworth.
