X0 – your special Beyoncé service from Newcastle

Travelling to the Stadium of Light from Newcastle couldn’t be easier with X0 – leaving from Bewick Street, opposite Newcastle Central Station and running non-stop to the Stadium of Light. Buses leave Newcastle at 15.00, 15.30, 16.00 and then every 20 minutes (at 00, 20 & 40 mins past the hour) until 18.40 to whisk you to the show. Our buses leave from the Wheatsheaf, close to the Stadium of Light for your journey home.

A single fare on X0 is £4, with a return costing only £5 or you can buy our Beyoncé DaySaver for £6 on the Go North East app and travel on any Go North East bus all day.

Go North East Buzzfare and Get Around tickets can be used on this service, but concessionary passes and Network One tickets won’t be valid.


Getting there

All our buses will run on their usual routes before the concert and will continue to stop on Kier Hardie Way or at the Wheatsheaf in Sunderland. Our 9, 20/20A, 35A and 56 all stop on Kier Hardie Way or at the Wheatsheaf, which are only a short walk from the entry areas to the Stadium of Light.

Our 2/2A, 38C, 39, 60, 61 and 78/78A all stop in Sunderland City Centre, where you can change onto a bus serving the Stadium of Light or walk across the Monkwearmouth Bridge.
