Local Transport Information
The Metro is Tyne and Wear’s own light rail system with 58 Metro stations serving Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland North Tyneside and South Tyneside.
Metro stations are conveniently located for easy access around Tyne and Wear and are situated in the heart of both Newcastle and Sunderland City centres.
There are also Metro stations located near to main University/College campuses and many of the halls of residences and student areas.
The Metro is fast, frequent and great value for money, especially for students.There are various ticket options for you as a student, but perhaps the most cost
effective is the Metro Student Card which is available to buy per semester, and entitles you to unlimited travel either within Newcastle/Sunderland areas or the
whole system depending upon the chosen option.
Metro Student Cards are available from any Nexus Travelshop. For further information on the Metro click here www.tyneandwearmetro.co.uk. Alternatively
