When is the Tyne and Wear Metro running over New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day?

New Year’s Eve will see the whole metro system run a Saturday service until around 10pm, when a 30 minute service will run until the majority of services end just after midnight. A 15 minute service will also run between Pelaw and South Gosforth to help North East residents get across Newcastle to celebrate the beginning of 2023 with their loved ones.

No metro service will run on New Year’s Day, while the bank holiday on Monday (January 2) will see regular weekday service without peak services.

Peak services are usually put in place throughout busy periods such as midweek rush hour as well as major events such as football matches and concerts at the Stadium of Light or St James’ Park.
