Dear Sir,

Your e-mail dated 25th January 2010 has been forwarded to me as the
person within Nexus responsible for responding to Freedom of Information
requests.

I confirm that I will make the relevant internal enquiries for the
documentation you have requested in 1 but in respect of 2 and 3 I can
confirm that Nexus does not hold such information. By way of background,
the Tyne and Wear Integrated Transport Authority applies a levy to the
constituent Local Authority's within Tyne and Wear and provides a
revenue grant to Nexus in order to support concessionary travel, the
metro, bus and rail services, bus infrastructure and the Ferry.

I shall be in contact with you in due course.

Yours Faithfully
