The North East's largest bus company has tweaked local bus timetables this Saturday, May 21 as tens of thousands of Sunderland fans head to Wembley.

Go North East is expecting to carry ‘considerably lower numbers’ of passengers across Wearside so to help with this and the current driver shortage, timetables will be revised on a small number of services for the day.

Some changes include running to enhanced Sunday timetables, additional morning and evening journeys to help workers, shoppers, and those staying locally to watch the match.
