Transportation from cruise line terminal to the city

Is it difficult to find transportation from cruise line terminal to the city? If not, are there taxi buses available at the cruise line terminal? Is it expensive for a trip from the terminal to the city?

Any information would be appreciated. Jeanne from L.A., USA

I think there is a bus that meets the ferry and takes you to the central station, failing that there are buses that run from the royal quays outlet mall which is directly adjacent to the ferry terminal, these will at least take you to a metro station. However I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will be along later!

Hi

There is a bus put on for you which drops you off and picks up at central station, their are a lot of taxis waiting as well, but you could phone blue line taxis on +44 191626666 who will meet you at the gate and will be cheaper, and will be in Newcastle within 15minutes, depending on traffic, just phone has you dock, I noticed on Saturday that a lot of visitors had headed the other way into Tynemouth Village, you will see it as you come into port

enjoy.

Couple of quid on the regular buses Jeanne and a 10 minute walk to the Metro at Percy Main will see you into town in another 10-15 mins. Either way will only be a couple of quid but Brian is quite right Blueline are very good and inexpensive, will be less than a tenner by taxi so if there are a few of you that will be the best way

Enjoy your visit!
