We provide, plan and promote public transport to improve the economic prosperity of North East England and the daily lives of its people. We also look to the future, creating the travel networks people will want to use in decades to come.
Our plans include the Metro: all change modernisation programme, worth around £350m over 11 years, providing a step change in comfort and reliability for our passengers.
We have procured a new train fleet for Metro which will last decades to come. The Swiss train builder, Stadler, will design, build and maintain the new trains. We are getting 42 new Metro trains, with the first ones set for passenger services in 2023.
We are also improving local bus services, working with local councils and operators through the Bus Strategy to meet the needs of local people. And we are investing in smart travel, with the Pop card making paying for travel simpler and more flexible.
Nexus is the Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive and administers funds on behalf of the Joint Transport Committee of the North East Combined Authority and the North of Tyne Combined Authority. Our task is to improve the quality of life and fortunes of everyone in Tyne and Wear, by creating better transport networks.
