From Sunday 13 December there will be more bus services and improved reliability in Newcastle as part of annual service improvements.
Key improvements include:
An additional 45 trips per week to improve frequency on some services and provide more travel options
Extending route 23 to Newcastle East to provide a direct connection for Newcastle east residents to Marketown (the route 21 will now end at Customs House)
Adjustment of bus timetables to better reflect traffic congestion and travel times
Between now and the network refinement launch, we will make final timetable adjustments and consult with our drivers. To allow customers plenty of time to plan their new trip, timetables will be available from November 29.
There will be adjustments to every timetable to improve reliability, however the key changes are outlined below.
