If you plan on using the Shields Ferry regularly eg to commute to a training course at Maersk Newcastle, AIS Training or going to work at Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate like many of our guests then we recommend you purchase a pre-paid Pop Card – a standard single adult ticket cost 20p less (£1.20) and a DaySaver costs 30p less (£2.50).

The standard adult DaySaver (all day) ticket costs £2.80 from 2nd January 2017.
