Celebrate Christmas with Newcastle Transport

We love spreading the Christmas cheer with our customers! This year, we've enlisted the help of Santa, his elves and reindeer to celebrate Christmas with our customers.

The Christmas Bus returns in 2023, transporting our customers across the city with festive decorations, jolly tunes and plenty of Christmas cheer.

Newcastle's favourite light rail reindeers are back, with Rudolph and his friends travelling throughout the CBD in December.

If you're lucky, you might also spot some of Santa's helpers out and about on the network with Christmas lollies for all!
