We've launched four seasonal services to help give the region's staycation market a boost. We want to reassure you that travelling by bus is safe — we've put a series of measures in place to make sure that our buses are clean and tidy for you. Watch our video further up the to see what we've been doing over the last few months.
We've also achieved VisitBritain's 'Good to Go' accreditation, which confirms that we're adhering to government and industry COVID guidelines, and have rigorous cleaning, social distancing and safety measures in place.
When planning in advance use our handy When2Travel prediction tool to see when's the best time to travel, then use our how many seats feature on the day to see how busy your bus is in real-time — it'll even tell you if your bus is going to be a single or double-decker and what features it has, such as free Wi-Fi and USB charging. If you're a part-time worker, or just working more flexible at the moment, we have the perfect solution for you — check out our new range of Flexi 5 tickets. They're just like you usual weekly ticket but split over any 5 individual days to help you get the best value for money.
Can I pay with cash on the bus? We only ask that you pay with cash if you have no other option.
Please provide the correct fare as we're unable to give change as our drivers are no longer handling cash. Where possible, use contactless payments or the Go North East app instead. Who may and may not travel? As per government advice, anyone can now travel with us. We just ask that you familiarise youself with our safety and travel advice on this if you haven't travelled with us for a while. Please don't travel if you are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms, are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms or sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms, are clinically extremely vulnerable and cannot shield during your journey, or have been advised by the NHS test and trace service that you should self-isolate.
What timetable is being operated? Services have returned to timetables that are similar to their pre-coronavirus times. They can all be viewed in our timetables and maps section. What if I'm disabled and require assistance?
New and improved
If a disabled passenger requires assistance they should request this in the same way they usually would. If for any reason a wheelchair user is unable to travel with us, a complimentary taxi will be arranged.
What steps will you take to maximise social distancing and how can we help? Please use one double-seat per passenger, unless you're travelling with a household member or someone who's in your family. If the bus is quiet, please leave a row in front and behind you clear. Some seats will be taped off, so please don't use these. We also ask that you socially distance yourself from others whilst waiting at bus stops, and stand back to let other people off the bus before boarding. Do I need to wear a face covering? Yes, you now need to wear a face covering on public transport. This can be a mask, scarf, snood, bandana or even something you can make out of an old t-shirt.
There are also some people that will be exempt from wearing a face covering - see our latest guidance. What additional cleaning is being carried out? Our buses are being cleaned regularly, even through the day with touchpoints rubbed down and a deep clean is done each night.
Is hand sanitiser available on your buses? Yes, we have fitted hand sanitiser units on our buses, so please use these as you board and again when leaving the bus. When is the best time to travel?
If you can, we ask that you travel outside of peak times to save space for those that have no other option but to travel at that time. We've also launched two innovative features on our website that let you see how busy our buses are going to be. Our When2Travel tool allows you to look up to two weeks ahead using a forecasting engine to predict how busy each bus will be, even down to individual bus stops.
What happens if the bus I'm waiting for is full?
Unfortunately, our capacity for each bus is reduced at the moment due to social distancing. So far, we are only seeing a small of journeys around peak time that are near our social distancing capacity. We are monitoring things daily and should there be any recurring issues we'll look at providing further journeys.
Problems with chat
What happens if the last bus of the day is full? We won't leave anyone stranded with our last buses.
We're continually monitoring passenger s and our last buses aren't reaching social distance capacity. We'll continue to monitor all journeys and should anything change we'll look to see if we can duplicate journeys to ensure you can travel. Are there any Go North East travel shops open? Sorry, our travel shop at intu Metrocentre isn't open. If you require any help, our customer services team are online from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm.
