Please see below a message from Go North East Services:


It has been confirmed this morning by Go North East that the proposed strike action between Saturday 30 September – Friday 6 October inclusive. A further strike may take place between Saturday 14 October 2023 and Friday 20 October 2023

While dedicated scholars’ buses normally operated by Go North East will operate as normal during the strikes as they have been prioritised, please be aware that these services are likely to be extremely busy and there is no available resource available to increase capacity on these routes.

For children, parents and staff that normally travel on local Go North East services to and from school, there will be no skeleton services in operation.

For holders of Go North East Season tickets (weekly, monthly, annual passes) please note these will be accepted on Tyne & Wear Metro services during the strike periods, please show staff your pass to travel.

Where people can, we advise them to make alternative arrangements.
