Adam Horner's Journey

Management Information & Research Officer
I use the Metro all of the time for work and play.

Why choose the Metro for the journey to work?   It’s cheaper and faster than driving – only 5 stops each way from Hebburn – and it’s more convenient than any other form of transport.

How long have you used the Metro?  10 years

Do you ever use the Metro on work-related journeys?  Yes, from time to time, if I cannot share a car with somebody then it’ll be the Metro.

What are the benefits of this form of travel?  It literally only takes me 15 minutes to get into work saving so much time in comparison to being stuck in traffic jams! Additional to this is the very reasonable cost of an annual pass obtained via work.

Any downsides?  It can be difficult to get a seat when it’s busy ….and sometimes I have been so engrossed in a book or listening to my music, I have missed my stop and ended up in Sunderland!

Where do you find travel advice?  Nexus website always has the answers.

What would you say to anyone thinking of using the Metro?  Go for it! It’s an excellent way to commute into Newcastle/Sunderland/South Shields without the stresses of traffic lights or bad drivers!
