From Newcastle, what is the best service to and from Wallsend? I can get the Stagecoach 12 or 40 or I can get the GNE 11 or Q3, I think the Coaster 1/1A takes longer. I don't know where is best to post this.

Thanks. I thought 11 was quickest, then Q3, then 1. Stagecoach 12 and 40 feel like they both take ages to get to Wallsend, no idea why. 

I will probably get the 11, I think. I come from a mostly Stagecoach area so it costs more to get a GNE service to Wallsend, but I think it's better anyway.

According to the timetables, Stagecoach 22 only takes 1 minute longer than GNE 11 between the same two destinations, so may be a better option for you if you prefer Stagecoach.

Yes, I forgot about the 22. Thanks, stagecoachbusdepot. I prefer GNE, but Stagecoach costs less because my area is Stagecoach. 

I used to get Stagecoach buses to and from Wallsend, but started getting a Day Rover so I could get the first bus that comes along.

Does the smartzone weekly pass not help you if your in thy area, and want to get whichever bus arrives first

Unfortunately I don't need a weekly pass, otherwise a Smartzone would be helpful.  Thanks.
I ended up getting the Stagecoach 22 to and from Wallsend today. I wanted the GNE 11 but it wasn't a Blue Arrow Scania Wright Solar as I expected and wanted or a Blue Arrow OmniCity. I think it was a Scania Omnidekker. It was late too, so after letting many 22s go by I ended up getting the 22 which followed the 11 closely anyway.

Really, what time?  I didn't know that. I got the Solar twice, I think. Usually I miss the 11 unfortunately. Today I had plenty of time and the 11 was even late, but I don't like the Omnidekkers. I'd like to see the Omnidekkers and Presidents withdrawn and new buses for the 11.

Which Stagecoach buses have WiFi onboard?

Does Stagecoach NE plan on introducing NSAs in the future? Stagecoach does have NSAs somewhere.

Our Stagecoach fleet list here: http://northeastbuses.co.uk/fleet/list.php?operatorF=3

No Stagecoach buses up here have NSA's.

Thanks, Michael.

I can't remember where Stagecoach buses have NSAs, but I know nowhere up here does. I was asking if Stagecoach NE will introduce NSAs at some point.
They said at a Stockton bus forum they had no plans to but that was a while back. They said passengers had mixed feelings about them which is fair enough.
Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the reason for Hartlepool gaining ADL E200s for the 1 instead of more MAN E200s was due to timekeeping/reliability issues of the MAN E200s on that route? 
Just whenever I'm in Hartlepool there is several MAN E200s allocated to the 1 with the ADL's allocated to the town services. There was 5 on there today!
Yes that's usually the case!!
12086 one of the latest to be repainted.

The provision of 'next stop' audio-visual announcements is quite likely to be mandatory in the near future, under the Bus Services Bill.
