(04 May 2024, 6:18 am)Storx I have very low expectations personally. It's obviously the likes of Gammon will be in charge now and Nexus which is fully operated by Labour councils is such a fantastic operation aswell.

Like Turkeys voting for Christmas in transport terms.

The fact one of her manifestos was to do an app just sums it up, there's been nothing stopping them doing it anyway. Other areas have managed to do it, it's literally the point of the stuff like the BSIP which we've chose to waste of pointless bus stations and bus routes to Mars.
Does it go via Wiltshire Drive, if so excellent use of money

Given that Kim plans to franchise buses over the whole of her area, I wonder whether Nexus will continue to exist as such. We can still have a local management for Metro and some local tickets/fares for days restricted to Tyne & Wear.

There are rumours that even in Newcastle Kim got more votes than Jamie. So, has the job of North of Tyne Mayor continued and they both gone head to head, Kim might even have been voted in by the electorate in this more restricted area.

Newcastle
McGuiness - 26,429
Driscoll - 25,018

North Tyneside
McGuiness - 24,858
Driscoll - 18,325

Northumberland
McGuinness - 27,992
Driscoll - 22,716

McGuinness would therefore have beaten Driscoll in the smaller North of Tyne area.

The set up of the Transport function in the NECA (Mayoral area) is complex. 

Nexus is the trading name of The Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive, a body corporate under the Transport Act 1968 - so abolishing Nexus isn't very easy.

NECA  has delegated to the county councils (Durham & Northumberland) the exercise of the following functions in their respective areas: 
a) implementing concessionary travel schemes pursuant to sections 93 -105 of the Transport Act 1985; 
b) determining local bus information to be made available, and the way in which it should be made available, pursuant to sections 139 to 143B of the Transport Act 2000; 
c) determining the operation, performance and development of accessible transport provision (including the provision of grants) pursuant to section 106 of the Transport Act 1985; d) all obligations of county councils relating to mandatory travel concessions pursuant to sections 145A to 150 of the Transport Act 2000. 
e) those functions of County Councils set out in Part IV of the Transport Act 1985 (Passenger Transport in areas other than Integrated Transport Areas) under:  
• section 63 – functions of local councils with respect to passenger transport  
• section 81 – provision, maintenance and operation of bus stations 
• section 82 – bus stations: restriction on discriminatory practices

So it's not clear how the Mayor will introduce franchising in Northumberland and Durham unless the County Councils also want it (which isn't guaranteed).

Imagine they'll just end up excluding anything ran by Consett, Ashington or Belmont.

Blyth who knows as that's the only really questionable one especially the 306/308/43/44/45/47

Don't believe GNE run anything which is exclusively in Durham or Northumberland which isn't ran by Consett which isn't contracted. I know in Manchester you just have to get a permit to continue operating it cross boundary, ie the Witchway services which are similar to most of these.

Good shout actually, totally forgot about that one. Not sure what they'd do with that, suppose it could move to Consett though.
