Go North East Service 27 from bus stops on Sunderland Road (Felling) provides a link to Gateshead Stadium every 20 minutes from Hebburn, Jarrow and South Shields.

Quaylink Services Q1 and Q2 provide a link from Gateshead Metro (Q1) and Newcastle City Centre (Q1 and Q2) to the Gateshead Quayside area. Unfortunately Q1 will be disrupted by road closures on event day so you are recommended to use Q2 to Newcastle Quayside and cross the Millennium Bridge to Gateshead.

It is possible to use many of the bus services operating to Newcastle City Centre, Gateshead or Heworth Metro stations then use Metro to get to Gateshead Stadium Metro station.
