This may cause a debate,whats everyones views on school kids filling up normal buses on normal routes,when there is perfectly good enough school buses provided,personally i think they should be banned,shame there isnt a way where the bus pass knows if that child lives on a school bus route or in close proximity to a school bus route that takes them to their school,ita a difficult one to explain,but it irritates me that people who have been to work or are elderly and are just trying to go about their business have to board a bus and listen to potty mouth teenagers who have no respect for anything,or cant get on because its full,which is what happened today (17.9.21),i mean luckily today was a warm day,but what happens if today it had of been chucking it down and had of been cold,that poor elderly man could of ended up ill,because he had to stand and wait for the next bus,or had to walk to find an alternative,i know i probably sound boring,but i was brought up in a time where you respect your elders,its not on,and something needs to be done about it,but that'll never happen

Thought the messaging was about getting people out of cars and on to buses...? Confused

  • New bus stop locations would be provided in Market Street, John Dobson Street, and Grainger Street

This will just cause chaos, there won't be enough avaliable bus stops without serious road improvements. You could Use St Mary's Place and St Thomas Street though.

Today was the first time since face coverings were no longer a legal requirement that I have been out and about on buses.

I was quite surprised to find that on the several journeys I was on, each time the majority of passengers on the bus were not wearing a mask or face covering. It was surprising given the push from GNE to still wear one even if it's not law.

I was just wondering what other people's experiences have been when travelling on buses since face coverings become not mandatory. Is it now the norm for the majority of passengers to not bother with it?

How easy would it be for GNE to install Tap On/Off machines on a bus that doesnt already have them.

An improvement on 'track the next bus'. But really? What about the punters who need to be in Sacriston or one of the many places the X15 doesn't go?
Needless to say, the timing of the tweet doesn't really help those punters standing and waiting for it already.

Stage 6 of the Tour of Britain hits Gateshead next Friday 10th and there's some interesting diversions and photo opportunities 

Durham Road will be closed northbound between the Angel and Harlow Green between 4am - 9pm.  Southbound closures will be the same between 12pm and 6pm.

Newcastle Bank in Birtley and Lamesley will have rolling closures for 45 minutes as cyclists sprint to the end point at the Angel of the North. 

Bus Diversions

X21 - will omit Low Fell and operate via A1 to Lobley Hill to Bensham Bank then Gateshead.

21 and 28 will divert by Harlow Green, Easedale Gdns , Wrekenton Row, Rockliffe, Mill House Roundabout, Portobello then B1288 past Ravensworth Terrace and its deadly speed bumps (which have wrecked many a car) to Birtley Red Lion, meaning stops between Harlow Green and Birtley Town Centre will not be observed (huge chunk of people)

28A will follow the same diversion but will use Hertford to access Saltwell Road (which suggests no service to Kibblesworth

I imagine the X12 will just get lost somewhere and the 23 won't operate.

Really not sure why the 21 doesn't just come down Long Bank after Wrekenton then it only misses a few stops as opposed to half of Birtley!
