Getting around Newcastle Gateshead is easy, thanks to the city’s extensive Metro system and a range of bus services. You can buy a Day Rover ticket for adults and for children. It is valid on the Metro, ferry and railway services as well as on almost all local buses. Tickets can be purchased from Metro ticket machines, all drivers of the major bus operators’ services and on-board the Shields ferry. If you are staying for a week you can buy the MetroSaver weekly travel card. The card is valid on Metro, Ferry and local rail services between Newcastle and Sunderland. Tickets can be purchased at any Nexus Travelshop, but you need a passport-sized photograph the first time you buy one. There are several Travelshops, including those at the Central Station and Monument Metro stations in Newcastle, and MetroCentre bus station and the Gateshead bus/Metro interchange.
