The bus service 900 will run between Haymarket and Four Lane Ends and service 901 will run between Haymarket and Airport calling at all Metro stations on the route. Local bus routes will not be accepting Metro tickets so passengers need to use the replacement bus services that are being provided.
There will be extra trains between Four Lane Ends and St James via Whitley Bay to provide people living in North Tyneside with an alternative route to Newcastle city centre. Trains will also run to/from Longbenton during peak service.
