List of Tyne and Wear Metro stations
Cullercoats Metro station is the Tyne and Wear Metro station serving Cullercoats on the North Tyneside coast. It was originally built by the North Eastern Railway as part of the North Tyneside Loop. It first opened on the 7 July 1882 and has been exclusively operated by the Tyne and Wear Metro since the opening day of the system on 11 August 1980.
The original buildings have been retained and as such Cullercoats station is one of the most architecturally interesting on the Metro network. The present station replaced an earlier one built in 1865, which was located further inland, about halfway up what is now Farringdon Road. This section of the railway ran between Tynemouth and Whitley Junction (now Monkseaton Metro station), with Cullercoats being the only stop in between.
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.
