Stagecoach UK Bus is part of the Stagecoach Group and is one of the largest bus operators in the UK, operating express and local bus services across the country, as well as a comprehensive network of intercity operations under the megabus.com brand. We connect communities in over 100 towns and cities in the UK, running a fleet of around 8,100 buses and coaches that is one of the largest in the country.
Our services play an important role in helping people in rural and urban areas access work, education, health, shopping and leisure, with two million passengers travelling on our bus services every day.
We have invested nearly £300 million in new state-of-the-art vehicles over the past four years. All of our new buses are designed to be fully accessible to elderly passengers, people with disabilities and families with young children and meet strict emissions standards.
Putting customers first is our priority. We continue to focus closely on the recruitment and training of our people, as well as improved passenger information and overall customer experience.
Our UK Bus division is a major employer, providing jobs for 18,000 people at a number of regional companies.
We are working hard to increase the quality, reliability and frequency of bus services to offer car users a realistic transport alternative and help cut congestion. Bus priority measures are crucial to achieving this objective and our local management teams work in close partnership with local authorities to improve local bus services.
