    4001 and 4002 out again yesterday and today. Seen on 153 today and 152 yesterday. I hope that tomorrow they will make it out for a full service rather than Just weekday Pelaw services.

    That's if there's a driver available ;)

    Surely this is just confusing for drivers, passengers and staff alike? Imagine if a passenger gets on with a bike at Pelaw and the driver has to remember to make sure he is off before Gateshead...

    Would be better to just make it that bikes are allowed everywhere except for during rush hour?

    Edit: don’t want my post to sound too negative as it is definitely a step in the right direction to ease the rules on bikes, and I applaud it. :)

    Not really, they're allowed everywhere apart from in the core tunnel. It's how it works on the tube, and for the same reason, which is to do with safety in the tunnels.

    It's better than before, where they weren't allowed anywhere on Metro.

    Ah if there is a legitimate health and safety reason behind it then that makes sense. Fair play to them in that case.

    4001 is back with 4083 today. Not sure what happened to 4002.

    It's just been swapped. 4002 was planned to be in service.
