The Shields Ferry
8 mins ·
UPDATE: Ferry services will be suspended all day. Replacement buses are being sourced at the moment, but are not place as yet. If travelling between North and South Shields customers are advised to find an alternative form of travel.

We will post an update on the replacement buses here as we get it. Apologies for inconvenience.

Pride of the Tyne has the engine problem which our engineers are working on now.

Spirit of the Tyne is undergoing planned maintenance in a dry dock at the moment.

Sorry for the disruption.

UPDATE: Ferry suspended. Replacement buses will begin running from 10.45am.

The buses run on the hour and on the half hour from each ferry landing. Please note that these are the same as the normal ferry times from North Shields, but are not the same as the normal ferry times from South Shields. This is of course because the replacement bus service takes longer than the ferry to travel between the two landings. The buses operate between South Shields ferry landing and North Shields landing via the Tyne Tunnel. From South Shields the buses depart from the bus stop on Ferry Street, outside the BT building, stop number 42S32.

From North Shields the buses depart from the bus stop on North Quay at the end of the ferry landing, stop number 41080.
