Why are the Sunday evening 310 journeys ex Newcastle scheduled to run via Hadrian Park, yet the Monday to Saturday evening journeys ex Newcastle aren't?

Is this due to funding arrangements with Nexus or a mistake when creating the timetable?

Looks like the extension to Amazon in Washington is doing well, spotted this on Dan's Twitter:

Significant passenger growth on our Connections4 service to
@AmazonUK at Follingsby Park has seen additional duplicate runs added to the timetable, with even more to follow from the end of this month. Excellent that so many of their Associates are choosing bus to travel to work

Looks like more Amazon runs are being added, which is brilliant.


As the September changes thread was closed, I had to make a new one - couldn't find an existing thread to place it in.

I've noticed a few issues with the bus station at the Galleries:

  • Stands can quite busy at certain times
  • Big Nexus Destination Boards suck on showing departures around 13:15ish (Pre GNE Sep Changes as well)
  • Escalators seem to break easily
