5: This service will be extended to Lukes Lane from Jarrow operating to the current timetable frequency. This service will be interworking with service 9 at Lukes Lane, combining together to offer a bus between Hebburn, Jarrow and Boldon up to every 15 minutes.

9: This service will be reduced to every 30 minutes, however during busy periods of the day an additional journey may be slotted in between Sunderland and Jarrow.

26: This service will be reduced to every 30 minutes, and will only operate between South Shields and Jarrow. This service will be interworking with service 50 using Euro 6 Scania Omnicitys, as a result will no longer be part of the Crusader brand.

Evening and Sunday journeys on this service will interwork with service 20.

27: This service will be increased to every 15 minutes. Between Heworth and Gateshead service 35 will run alongside to continue the 6 buses an hour during the day.

35: Monday to Saturday Daytime journeys will be revised to extend to Heworth and Gateshead via Sunderland Road in order to offer additional buses with service 26/27 being reduced in frequency. This service will no longer operate beyond Sunderland, with the Low Moorsley section transferred to a new service.

35A: This service will continue as normal, although will only operate between Sunderland and Heworth. The southern section of the route will be replaced by a new 75/75A service.

Bit irrelvant to your changes but it got me thinking I wish there was promotion for a proper bus route through the tunnel, whether it's the 19 and 9 connecting or something else. It's almost that the Tyne is a 20ft brick wall when it comes to public transport apart from the ferry which barely connects to nothing at the north side without travelling via Newcastle and I'm not talking the 319 which runs to North Shields which is pointless from Jarrow or even Sunderland in the past.

Something in the form of a 'Metro Link' which runs between the 4 main metro stations which could be possible (Fellgate / Jarrow / Percy Main / N'land Park) or (Brockley Whins / Bede / Percy Main / N'land Park) depending on whether you want it to serve main areas or be a quicker service. It's a right pain arse having to travel to Newcastle then back to get across the water which Nexus has agreed that Metro tickets are valid for use on as run it as a form of a 'Metro' bus.

RE: Go North East: Service Suggestions v2
Cotswold Lane is the wrong side of the train line for Brockley Whins. Cotswold Lane is part of Boldon Colliery and quite a walk from bus stop to the actual metro station.. Your better off sending out of Tunnel turning off at Lindisfarne Roundabout, then via Scotch Estate, South Leam Estate. Brockley Whins. South Shields Crem, Biddick Hall, Boldon School and Boldon Asda. Restoring the lost 538/542 links

RE: Go North East: Service Suggestions v2
Could the 13 be merged with 204/208/265.
Was also wondering if 720 could come back.

Sure 13 could merge with something. Seems to be going the way of the 95

RE: Go North East: Service Suggestions v2
They could always make the 265 stand-alone and send it to Langley Park, additionaly return the service to Chester-le-Street depot. Then with a few adjustments to the timetable, the 202, 204, 208 could all continue their cycle. Additionally the 55 journeys that terminate at Peterlee can be extended to Station Town, keeping the 202 between Seaham and Peterlee only.

If the x22 gets reintroduced at some point maybe it could interwork with that.

A Few more Ideas, some essential, others just a bit of fun.

I think that these suggestions are stupid and have no point. I know GNE have decreased 26 service and frequency but I think it is wrong. I think a link that will help lots of people is a one of a route called 51 (linked to 5 & 50) This route will follow the 27 from South Shields until Jarrow Bus Station. From there it will follow the 26 until primrose estate. After it will turn right to join onto York Avenue to join the 9. It will follow the 9 until Boldon Asda and it will split off to join the 50 towards Durham. Other split offs from the 50 in Washington etc. may occur too. I think this solves the immediate problem of some of the
