Introducing the new Discovery Ticket
The region's largest bus operator, Go North East, has introduced a new 'Discovery' ticket.
The new ticket is valid on the company's AD122 Hadrian's Wall Country Bus route and the open-top city sightseeing Toon Tour service, as well as all other Go North East bus services (except the 327, X50 and special event buses).
For those discovering the North East for more than just a day, a 3-day option is also available, which allows keen explorers to save a third off the price of three separate tickets.
The Discovery ticket can be purchased in advance on the company's mobile app, or on the bus using cash or a contactless bank card.
Dan Graham, Commercial Development Manager at Go North East, said: "The new Discovery ticket is valid on all of our services across the region, including the AD122 Hadrian's Wall Country Bus and the Toon Tour.
The AD122 makes it easy to explore our Roman heritage and get out and about in some of the country’s most spectacular landscapes.
In contrast, the Toon Tour takes in the sights of the bustling, vibrant centres of Newcastle and Gateshead, including the iconic Tyne Bridge, two cathedrals, and the legendary St. James' Park.
We're pleased to be introducing a brand new ticket which allows those exploring the region to get around in a green and sustainable way. Enjoy Discovering!"
