Officials from the Department are working with representatives from the city regions, including Nexus and Transport North East, to establish options for integrated and multi-modal ticketing.

The City Region Sustainable Transport Settlements and wider Government support for bus services will provide funding in the lifetime of this Parliament to support all eligible city regions. The North East will be eligible for these settlements once appropriate governance is in place. Existing commitments from the Transforming Cities Fund and core local authority transport funding continue to be met.
