Tyne & Wear Public

Transport Users Group


Who we are and how to contact us..

Tyne & Wear Public Transport Users Group (TWPTUG), formed in November 2010, calls for the full integration of public transport modes such as rail, Metro, bus and ferry with private transport modes such as of walking, cycling and driving. We believe full integration can only be properly achieved if public transport is operated under public ownership. TWPTUG is a voluntary group of individuals and representatives from various organisations across Tyne and Wear. See our Partners page for more details.
