Every Go North East skeleton service running during strike action across South Tyneside and beyond
Select services are running across the North East.
The strikes have left some community members unable to reach nearby shops, schools or work sites with the travel company now offering a number of so-called skeleton services to assist communities impacted by the lack of services.
In an update on the Go North East website, the company said: "Due to the ongoing industrial action, we are unfortunately unable to provide a normal service.
"We are running all school services, certain contracted services, and we are aiming to restore a skeleton service on as many routes as possible. These duties are being covered by office workers and managers with bus driving licences, as well as regular drivers who have opted to return to work to keep essential services moving.
"These services may be subject to delay due to reduced frequencies in operation - please be kind to our team who are providing them."
