Newcastle bus ban

Newcastle City Council is proposing a ban on buses on Blackett Street that could have a catastrophic impact on passengers, local businesses and residents in the area.

Around 8.2million bus passengers each year either begin or end their journeys on Blackett Street which provides access to galleries, shops and restaurants in the heart of the City. Bus operators will have to find alternative routes on already congested roads outside of the City centre forcing many people to avoid the area altogether.

Director of Bus Users England, Dawn Badminton-Capps, is calling on passengers and local business owners to make their views known: “We’ll be on board buses travelling around Newcastle City centre on Friday 12 January to find out what passengers think of the proposals. Anyone who doesn’t get to speak to us in person can phone or email us direct with their concerns. We’ve also written to City Councillor, Arlene Ainsley, to raise these issues but unfortunately we haven’t yet had a response.”
