Newcastle upgrades

As part of the strategy to revitalise Newcastle, the Hamilton Station upgrade has been completed and work is underway on a new transport interchange at Wickham, which will be a hub for the new light rail, trains, buses and taxis.

Dedicated shuttle buses will replace trains to and from the Newcastle City Centre until the Wickham interchange is completed.

From 5 January 2015 – 2016

After Hamilton Station reopens shuttle buses replace trains between Hamilton and Newcastle until the Wickham interchange is completed.

Shuttle bus fares

Travel on shuttle buses will cost the same as if you were catching the train. Tap on and tap off each mode of transport as normal and the Opal system will deduct a single train fare based on the overall distance you travel.
