#AYearOfBuses 212: MAX Newcastle – Middlesbrough

Ten days after our last Arriva MAX route featured, we’re taking a look at another! It’s MAX X12, linking Newcastle with Middlesbrough.

Launched in 2015, Arriva’s Max X15 runs from Newcastle’s Eldon Square bus station, through nearby Gateshead, and then down to Chester-le-Street, Durham, Stockton and Middlesbrough.

Along the way, MAX X12 stops in Sedgefield, where a former Roman ‘ladder settlement’ was discovered by Channel Four’s Time Team programme in 2003, in fields just to the west of the town.

MAX X12 features a mixed fleet of buses upgraded to MAX spec, featuring free WiFi and high-backed eLeather seats.
