Changes to services X21 and X22 from 31 August 2021

Monday to Friday daytime service to be increased

We are pleased to announce that from Tuesday 31 August 2021 these services will be reinstated to their normal frequency of up to every 20 minutes (combined into an up to every 10 minutes service along common sections of route) during Monday to Friday daytimes.

Regrettably, the current Saturday and Sunday timetables will remain in place whilst we continue to manage our driver availability challenges.

As part of these changes, timetables have been revised to ensure a more robust and punctual service, based on real-time operating data. As a result, this does mean that there is a significant revision to the service timetables, particularly at peak times.

Whilst the vast majority of the day will be broadly similar to normal, passengers attention is sought to the below key changes to the early morning timetable in particular, with some journeys running earlier than current.

Service X21 Newbiggin – Ashington – Bedlington - Newcastle:

 

  • 0546 from Ashington, will now depart at 0536 and operate 10min earlier throughout to Newcastle, arriving at 0630
