DBTW should work with trades unions and use an existing agreement to ensure there are enough drivers to work all required shifts on Great North Run days - including services set to run before 10am.
The course has enabled DBTW to double the number of trainee drivers it can train within a year.
"These events are a chance for customers to speak to senior managers from DBTW and Nexus to discuss the Tyne and Wear Metro service in an informal setting.
Director general of Nexus, Bernard Garner, said: "We are pleased that the RMT members have voted to accept the improved pay offer from DBTW. Passengers who rely on Metro will be relieved to know that this dispute is now at an end."
Sharon Kelly, director of customer service at DBTW, said: "This is a matter for Churchill to resolve with its staff, but we have contingencies in place, so the strike will not impact on the travelling public."
I''ve got scrap-apathy, you might say." Sharon Kelly director of customer services at DBTW, which operates the Metro on behalf of Nexus, said: We work closely with the police to ensure the Metro is safe for the tens of thousands of people who use it every day and as a result, crime is low.
Alongside the clean-up, Nexus, its train operator DBTW and the region's other transport providers will be reviewing all aspects of our response to see what we can improve on in a future emergency.
The drivers, who earn up to pounds 32,000 with overtime, previously turned down a 2.1% offer by DB Tyne and Wear (DBTW), leading to the first walk-out, timed to coincide with Coldplay's Stadium of Light gig.
The latest deal from DB Regio Tyne and Wear (DBTW), who run Metro services, continues to include a 2.1% pay increase or pounds 520 payment, whichever is greater, stretching to 3% for lower-paid workers.
Sharon Kelly for DBTW added: I can confirm that we have invited the unions to reopen talks on this matter.
But they rejected the 2.1% offer from DBTW as "not good enough", meaning the first of two days of industrial action will take place on Thursday.
But the final offer from DB Regio Tyne & Wear (DBTW) of 2.1% was branded "not good enough" and rejected.
