New ticket machines

Have your say

NEW ticket machines have been installed in more than two thirds of Metro stations.

Nexus, which owns, manages and is modernising the Tyne and Wear Metro, is installing the new machines across the network.

A total of 42 stations now have the machines, which can handle smartcard transactions for the new Pop cards.

The project involves installing smartcard validators at every station and ticket gates at 13 of the busiest stations on the system.
