Take the coastal route with new revamped MAX 306/308 services, there's so much to see and do!

We are excited to announce the launch of MAX on bus services 306 and 308 services. The public were invited to explore the coastal town of Tynemouth where there were FREE trampolines, buses on display and lots of freebies and giveaways including free entry to local attractions Blue Reef Aquarium & Whitley Bay Ice Rink.
