I imagine it's probably more staffing than anything to why they're not putting in for them at the minute.

They aren't on the framework to even bid for the planned Metro Replacement contracts anymore - they chose not to be.

To be fair Go North East does a good enough job as it is covering it, even when there's emergency replacements on or sudden closures a number of GNE routes shadow the Metro service usually accept tickets until replacement buses are in action or metro service resumes. Also GNE also works closely with other operators such as Stanley and Jim Hughes to provide extra vehicles if needed.
