Tyne and Wear Public Transport Users group has been strongly supporting the campaign to introduce Bus Quality Contacts in T&W.
The full Quality Contacts Proposal for Tyne & Wear is available at the Nexus website:
- New fully interaged public transport network, with standard zonal based pricing across all bus companies vs. every bus company setting their own pricing structure. New fully integrated smart ticketing that could be used across all buses and metros and ferry.
Instead of the bus companies running the bus services solely for profit for their shareholders, this would mean a legally binding partnership between our representatives, (Councillors ), Nexus and the bus Companies, to improve our public transport.
We hope you will show your support for the introduction of Quality Contracts by writing or emailing or personally lobbying your NORTH EAST COMBINED AUTHORITY councillors representatives for your borough. See also our leaflet - link above
