Extra buses are being introduced on a service from Blyth to North Tyneside from next week.

Go North East’s ‘Cobalt Clipper’ service 309 is being increased to run every 15 minutes during the day on Mondays to Saturdays.

The service, which will see the changes from Monday, September 1, provides links to Whitley Bay, Cobalt Business Park and Newcastle.

Stephen King, marketing and sales manager for the regional transport company, said: “We’re delighted to have welcomed more customers on board the Cobalt Clipper since we introduced new buses earlier in the year.

“Our new and comfortable double deckers with free onboard wi-fi, power sockets for phones or tablets and next stop announcements have proved very popular with commuters and shoppers.

“Blyth is a popular destination on the route and we’re very pleased to be increasing the service to four buses an hour for most of the day.”
