From 25 January 2015, all journeys on Angel service 21 will now operate via Newgate Street. This means that evening journeys which currently operate via the O2 Academy on Westgate Road will no longer do so. Passengers wishing to board the service in Newcastle City Centre should use the normal daytime stops at Eldon Square Bus Station, Newgate Street St Andrew’s Church, Newgate Street Wilkinson’s or St Nicholas Street Castle Garth.

Cleaner buses - Our Kite Mark explained
Go North East has one of the cleanest bus fleets of its size in the country and to make it even easier for you to see how well your bus is doing to help look after the environment, we have introduced a new ‘kite mark’ on our buses.
Using simple illustrations based on a red kite bird taking flight, each symbol lets you see at-a-glance how each of our buses meet European standards on emissions. Find out more about cleaner engines.
