Arriva Logo

Before the Sapphire and MAX brand were launched across the region a few route brandings were given to services operating out of Jesmond depot do work alongside some recent service changes. Service 46 which runs from Newcastle to Featherstone Grove via Gosforth and Regent Centre had been extended to operate via the Royal Victoria Infirmary and the General Hospital in Newcastle every 30 minutes on behalf of the NHS and Nexus. Alongside this, the 52 operates via Freeman Hospital, so this also gained branding for the route then finally the 553 also gained a brand which operates from Freeman Hospital to Regent Centre. The 52 and 53 interwork with vehicles operating the 52 route from Newcastle, Freeman Hospital, Four Lane Ends Interchange, Killingworth and Cramlington, then continuing as a 53 to North Shields via Killingworth, Forest Hall and Shiremoor. The service operates every 30 minutes using refurbished Volvo B10BLE / Alexander ALX300’s using the simple vinyls applied above the windows over the Arriva livery which is shown below:
