Crusader buses have a frequency of up to every 12 minutes on Monday to Saturday daytimes, running from South Shields, Jarrow, Hebburn, Monkton Lane, Heworth Metro, Felling Metro, Gateshead Interchange to Newcastle City Centre.
If you are heading into South Tyneside and the coast, the Crusader will take you to the heart of South Shields, where there are a number of attractions, shops and museums.
Our Crusader name comes from the 1936 Jarrow Crusades when a group of 200 Jarrow men marched 300 miles to London to protest against poverty.

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.
