Service Update - 35, X21 and X22

Customers are advised that Arriva will be making some temporary changes to services 35, X21 and X22 within the Ashington area from Sunday the 14th April.

We’re making these changes following recent issues with service reliability, driven by a temporary shortage of available driving staff. We’re working hard to resolve this and we do have a number of new drivers currently in training, with more ready to start, but for the short term we do need to reduce frequency of the above services, to ensure that we can continue to offer a reliable service for the entire network we operate within the area.

This is a temporary change and as soon as we’re able to, we will reinstate the normal frequencies on each of these services. 

Service 35 – Newbiggin to Morpeth via Ashington

A temporary timetable will be introduced on a Monday to Friday which will see the frequency of service reduce to every 30 minutes through the day. Attention has been placed on early morning and late evening journeys to minimise the disruption and where possible, retain existing journey schedules.

There will be no changes to the Saturday and Sunday timetables, which will continue to operate as normal.
