The number 33 bus, which has been threatened with the axe, has been saved for the next 12 months.

The service connects Garden Village to the city centre via the Regent Centre, the High Street and Jesmond.

Councillors from East Gosforth, Parklands and North Jesmond have been campaigning to save the route, which is popular with many local residents.

A half hourly service is now guaranteed until at least March 2010.

Councillor Peter Leggott says: "We are pleased that Stagecoach has agreed to keep the service running for another 12 months.

"However, Stagecoach has made it clear that for the No 33 to continue local people must use the service."
