Responsibility for the operation of the Tyne and Wear Metro is a matter devolved to the North East Combined Authority (NECA), and the monitoring of the performance rests with Nexus (the Tyne & Wear Passenger Transport Executive).

Regular updates are provided to North East Combined Authority meetings, where performance is scrutinized and the Department for Transport is provided with performance information on a regular basis.
