There will be no Metros between Pelaw and South Shields on Sunday, September 29.

Service operator Nexus confirmed that there will be no Metro services running between the two stations on Sunday, September 29.

Instead, passengers will have to use the replacement bus, number 900. It will be calling at, or close to, all stations from Heworth to South Shields.

The final replacement bus to leave South Shields on Sunday night will not arrive at Heworth in time to meet the last train, so this service will instead continue to Regent Centre.
