Thank you for the link. I expect another new ticket will be introduced for the X75?

Direct route according to google maps is under 50 mins and goes near Ponteland. Wonder how long it will take.

What route will this new service take from Haymarket to Ponteland? X77/X78/X79, 74, 808 route or something else? Hopefully it will be a success.

Exactly, cant stand people who say something then not elaborate. Same reason  I came off fb. Too many people attention seeking
Being the X75, I expect it will follow a route similar to Stagecoach's X77/X78/X79 and do Haymarket - Cowgate - Airport - Ponteland, but as it's a Go North East service it might follow the 74 route but limited stop and do Haymarket - Westerhope - Callerton - Ponteland. Does anyone know yet?
Does anyone know what it'll be allocated?

It will have to be a single decker, as I'm sure that deckers can't enter Belsay.
Ooo Friend, Bus Friend.
A Solo would probably suit it. Can't see there being huge numbers of passengers using it unless there's a major event.

Tynedale Links Solo SR? I don't expect there will be much demand, I'm not sure why the service is being created.
Are English Heritage supporting the service? (I did think it was linked to the horse trial events they have but that’s one weekend in June).

I’d guess this is also dependent on social distancing being relaxed somewhat as at the moment entry to Belsay is ticketed with a set time.
Wistfully stuck in the 90s
So is this new X75 definitely going to happen? If so, will it only be stopping at Haymarket, Ponteland and Belsay. How limited stop will it be?
I'm keen to know what route this X75 will take. Maybe it will follow the X84/X85 route from Newcastle to Heddon on the Wall, and then go to Ponteland from there? Logically it should follow Ponteland Road, but GNE don't run any services along there, bar the 42A which doesn't come from Newcastle. Even though its limited stop, it might serve the X77/X78/X79 stood along Ponteland Road, or the 74 stops if taking Stamfordham Road.

Does anyone know what tickets will be available/valid for travel on the X75?

No idea why this X75 is being introduced just for weekends for less than 2 months. Combined with the 74 it could be permanent, even though I know its not contracted and the 74 is.

Five trips each way, but no timetable published yet. Hopefully the service does happen and is successful.

I guess information will be released when GNE are ready to.  Asking the same question over and over on a daily basis will not make GNE hurry themselves.
