Arriva are to help run the 901 alongside Stagecoach on 25th/26th June
Looks like there isn't going to be a metro replacement between St James & Tynemouth for the two week closure
Bit of an odd metro replacement contract has popped up for Jh. South Gosforth to Gateshead Stadium from the 7th of August for one day

I wish car parking could be paid for with a Pop card, so you tap in and out at a car park validator instead of/in addition to platform ones.

Bet a large chunk of that will be going on fixing N'land Park the top floors have been shut for over a year now since the local yobs smashed all the glass on the stairs.

Wouldn't park in it personally, it's not safe and a few lights and CCTV won't change that.
