As many of you will have noticed there have been two separate operators running services along Featherstone Grove in the evenings and on Sundays recently. This is due to an overlap in contracts with Arriva and the new operator of the service, Go North East. We can now confirm that from August 11th Arriva will cease their evening and Sunday service and the double running of buses will therefore come to an end. Any passengers with an Arriva ticket (either a return or period ticket) will be able to use them on the Go North East service (number 40a).
This change has no impact on the normal day time service operated by Arriva.
