Nexus Rail Insight Day


There are few people living in Tyne and Wear whose daily lives are not touched in some way by Nexus. It might be getting you to work, or taking the children to school. It might be treating you to a day out shopping or a family trip to the coast or a museum. It might be helping you enjoy a night out on the town without worrying who will be driving home.

The Tyne and Wear Metro is the UK's busiest light rail system outside London. It carries around 37 million passengers a year, and is the backbone of the area’s public transport network. The system is owned and managed by Nexus, and has 60 stations with peak time trains running up to every three minutes. Metro has led the way in innovation - as the UK’s first modern light rail service, the first to be designed with disabled people in mind, the first to be non-smoking and the first to provide mobile phone and internet reception throughout its underground sections.

They provide, plan and promote public transport to improve the economic prosperity of North East England and the daily lives of its people. They also look to the future, creating the travel networks people will want to use in decades to come.
