Fed up waiting for buses that are sometimes late or want to know more about local bus services then watch out for the mobile bus surgery.
Go-Ahead Northern operators of Coastline services in the South Tyneside area have organised the mobile bus surgery to visit various parts of the borough on a regular basis.
Go-Ahead Northern staff are available to listen to complaints or queries about bus services and to distribute bus timetable information.
The bus surgery parks in convenient locations near to main shopping areas and on a recent visit to South Shields, South Tyneside Council's two representatives on the Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Authority called in to see how things work.
Councillor Tom Hanson who is also a Vice Chairman of the PTA and Councillor Peter Boyack, Lead Member for Neighbourhood Services, met with Go-Ahead Northern and NEXUS representatives.
