Tyne & Wear Metro

The Tyne & Wear Metro opened in 1980. Light rail vehicles replaced trains on suburban lines into Newcastle from north and south of the Tyne. The system was integrated with the local bus network, with bus routes redesigned to carry people to Metro interchanges rather than direct into the centre of Newcastle. A single ticket allowed passengers to interchange between bus and Metro.

The Metro was designed to be fully wheelchair-accessible right from the start, well before any other UK transport systems.
