About Go North East

Go North East is the region’s largest bus company, operating a fleet of nearly 700 buses and employing more than 2,000 people. Providing good value bus services that meet our customer needs is what we‘re about. Continuously challenging ourselves to improve and innovate is how we go about it.

Passenger Focus’ surveys have consistently rated Go North East around 90% for customer satisfaction. We are passionate about service and innovation, which we firmly believe are responsible for driving growth in passenger volumes and satisfaction levels. Refreshing more conventional approaches, as well as introducing new technology into communications, pricing and delivery of services, we continue to positively challenge established ways of thinking about bus services.

The company has a reputation of being a flexible and innovative partner – both with the private and public sector. Successful partnerships, each unique on many fronts, include Cobalt Business Park, MetroCentre shopping centre, The NPower Rainton Gate development, the high profile ‘Quaylink’ operation in Newcastle and Gateshead and the East Gateshead and South Tyneside Quality Bus Partnerships.

Go North East is dedicated to engaging with local communities through its innovative, branded bus routes which not only engender community pride but increase passengers and market share. High profile brands such as ‘Red Arrows’, ‘Angel’ and ‘citylink’ offer new, higher quality travel experiences for an increasing number of customers whilst the ‘Tyne Tees Link’ provides attractively priced, fast and direct regional links.
