LinkUp is a demand responsive transport system in Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom. The service is funded and coordinated by Nexus, the Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive. The service replaced the smaller scale U-Call which replaced the yet smaller Western Links. The service carries the tag line "The Bus You Book Like A Taxi" which is included in the LinkUp livery.

How the System Works

The service allows users to telephone the booking office and request a bus to meet them at a 'meeting point' in the same manner as one would use to book a taxi. Meeting points are usually public places, such as health centres and leisure facilities as well as all existing bus stops. Fares are charged at the same rate as the equivalent bus fare. Additionally the user can pay 50p to be picked up or dropped off at their own front door as long as the bus can access it.


The services utilises a fleet of Optare Solo Slimline Minibuses owned and run by Veolia Transportation North East, formally Dunn-Line (Durham). All of these carry the distinctive silver "LinkUp" livery.
