List of Tyne and Wear Metro stations
Heading west from Byker station, the route crosses the dramatic 800m long Byker Viaduct constructed by Arup specifically for the Metro.
Since 2005 Byker station has been used to display a series of temporary artworks through the Next Stop Byker initiative, a partnership between Metro operator Nexus and Newcastle City Council. The works are displayed on an 11 metre by 2.5 metre wall in the ticket concourse.
Different zonal fare systems are used for Metro single tickets and inter-modal Transfare tickets, which means that for a number of journeys a Transfare may actually be cheaper than a standard Metro-only ticket.
