Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive,

I would be grateful if you could send me over (either digitally via email, or in a disc based format) a copy of the announcements played on Metrocars (both female and male, if possible).

I would also like to request a copy of the old 'Stand Clear of the doors, please' announcements that were used around 2000 if they are still held.

I would also like to know how much of Nexus' budget has been spent on announcements across the Metro fleet with the introduction of the new male announcements and how much has been spent on the female announcements (including the technology costs/fitting costs) since introduction in a broken down manner of where money has been put into subcategories.

Yours faithfully,

J White

Dear Freedom Info,

I have received the disc with announcements.

However, this does not include the new Male on board announcements. Nor does the disc contain the old 'Stand Clear of the doors announcement' that I also requested.

Yours sincerely,

Jason White

Hello Jason,

Unfortunately, Nexus's file system prevents files being sent via email or via a Cloud storage platform, from what I have heard in the past. The only method to receive such files are via CD.
