Northumberland Bus Pass Concessions   

From various web sites, the following....…

From 1 April 2008 passes issued in Northumberland can be used from 9am onwards on Mondays to Saturdays and all day weekends and bank holidays for all journeys that start within Northumberland. However local variations may apply on journeys that start outside the County as the minimum statutory start time is 9:30am. Earlier start times are at the discretion of issuing authorities and must be funded locally.

Local operator Go-North East are allowing concessionary pass holders to travel before the 9:30 start time on payment of a small supplement.

This is 50p for journies within Tyne & Wear and £1 for journies which cross from / to T&W and Durham or Northumberland.
