The Bus Pass Group is unsurprisingly aimed at members with passes but there is a range of day passes available to others who want to join us. Our early excursions took us to Morpeth, Hexham, Middlesbrough, Alnwick and Rothbury. Some members of the group also have Tyne & Wear Metro annual passes, which can be bought as an add-on to a bus pass, and we may make some use of these. Our Convener is Mike Brown, Webmaster, but all group members are invited to arrange trips.
'Newcastle Elders' publish a useful annual guide to bus pass travel from Newcastle.
Covid-19 situation as at October 2020: Travel restrictions and reluctance to use public transport casually have put a hold on our activities for the time being.
