He's wrong, either deliberately , which would suggest some edict to force customers to pay again, or the company needs to sort its act out re ticket training.

True. Also on the subject. Isn't the 333 meant to be free due it being a shuttle service for the ferry

Well yeah, if you got the Ferry your ticket would be valid on the 333 after.

No mention of Central Taxis of Gateshead or Nexus Bus, on explorer website/Network One.  They cannot be sold on GCT buses, and there is no Explorer pass button on machine to accept them.  Ticket Machines are setup by Nexus.  Day Rover/Junior Rovers can be sold on GCT.

When GNE had the 23 & W2, GNE tickets wern't valid, and is said so on Timetable pages at the time

On a similar note, Are N Tyne tickets valid To Cramlington on 42 or to Dinnington/Airport/Kingston Park on 42A.  GNE app map is poor, but it looks like A19/A1 is the boundary (Except for Q3 to Great Park).  Customer services also say that N TYNE tickets aren't valid beyond A1/A19, but drivers sell them as returns to Kingston Park

Any ticket that is valid on Ferry is also valid on 333

It is the responsibility of the bus operator to set up ticket machines, not Nexus.

Gateshead Central Taxis should be selling and accepting this ticket range. It is ridiculous to even suggest that Day Rovers are accepted but a related ticket (Explorer) under the same body is not.

This is a mistake of the company, and clearly drivers are being misinformed.

Clearly this will also affect evening journeys on Go North East’s daytime services, where this ticket range is definitely accepted. Perhaps further investigation with Nexus is required, if it is reported to them.

This is a completely different situation.

The Explorer ticket isn’t a Go North East ticket, so was valid on the 23 and W2 when they operated these services, even if their own commercial products were not.

On a slightly related note, are GNE tickets still not accepted on the Cathedral bus, a year or two back I tried to use it and was told I couldn't use my ticket, despite that not being mentioned anywhere on the GNE website.

No, Durham County Council don’t permit the use of the operators own tickets on the Cathedral Bus.
