This newly launched website aims to bridge the divide between general users and bus enthusiasts.

The North East has a high number of bus enthusiasts and users (with the author having fallen into both those categories), but there is yet to be a single website that provides an information source for both groups.

This is where North East Bus comes in. The website aims to provide a gateway to timetable information, via user friendly interactive route lists. A service updates section provides information on major disruptions, such as roadworks, which may affect bus routes. Notification of timetable changes will also be provided, where possible.

The other component will be an enthusiasts section, with fleet lists for the three main operators, plus some independents. Other content will also be added in due course.
