Details

How do I work out the number of zones I'm travelling in?
The map attached shows Tyne and Wear divided into just 3 zones - yellow, green and grey.
If your journey is entirely within just one zone (yellow, green OR grey) - you only need a 1 zone Transfare (T1 on Metro).
If you are travelling in the yellow AND the green zones or the green AND the grey zones - you need a 2 zone Transfare (T2 on Metro).
And if you are travelling in the yellow, green AND grey zones you need a 3 zone Transfare (T3 on Metro).

What if I start my journey on a zone boundary?
Bus stops and Metro stations on boundaries are in both zones.
For example, if you travel from Felling to Windy Nook via Heworth your whole journey is in the green zone so you need a one zone Transfare (T1 on Metro). Similarly if you travel from Felling to the Freeman Hospital via Monument your journey is entirely in the yellow zone so you need a one zone Transfare (T1 on Metro).
