"Metro - our local underground" Metro Tip by fizzb

Metro, Newcastle upon Tyne: 22 reviews and 28 photos


The Metro provides a useful means of transport around the Newcastle locality. There are relatively few stations centrally, but then the city centre is compact, so it doesn't cause a problem.
The Metro runs out to the coast (Whitley Bay & Tynemouth), and to the airport (takes about 40 minutes from the centre). A recent extension means that you can now get to Sunderland too.
The trains are clean (usually....) and safe to use. Fares are a bit expensive over short distances, but longer journeys are better value for money. Stations are indicated by a big black "M" on a yellow background.

Type: Subway/Metro
