Soccerbus

Getting to St. James' Park is really easy with us Go North East as we run two dedicated Park & Ride routes.  You can park in the Metrocentre Coach Park and catch our X50 Soccerbus or at Newcastle Great Park and catch our X40 Great Park & Ride.

  • Soccerbus is a direct link between the Metrocentre and St James’ Park on Newcastle United home match days, offering a convenient Park & Ride service and easy access to the stadium for everyone.
  • Runs for all Newcastle United first team home matches during the 2014/15 football season, including pre-season friendlies.
  • The first bus leaves the Metrocentre (Coach Park) two hours before each match. Buses then run at frequent intervals until the last departure 15 minutes before the scheduled kick-off time.
  • Buses return from St James’ Park at frequent intervals after each match. The last bus leaves one hour after the final whistle.
  • Free parking in dedicated spaces at the Metrocentre Coach Park – an attendant is on hand to guide you to the reserved parking spaces.
