In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.
Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales it is compulsory to wear a three layer face covering on public transport. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page
iOS and Android customers now have access to update to version 2.1 of the Stagecoach Bus App.
The latest update introduces the NEW How busy is my bus? This new feature is designed to help you use our services with ease while still following current social distancing guidance and provide further reassurance for your journeys with us. Integrated within the live bus map in our app, you can now see how busy your bus is likely to be using a simple colour code – green, amber or dark amber, see below to find out more.
Our mobile app has all you need in one place - Bus tracking on our new map, journey planning, live bus information and mobile bus tickets.

Amber bus: Means this service is likely to be quite busy at this time.
Dark amber bus: Means this service is usually very busy at this time.

The new Busy Bus indicator has been added to the app.
The Busy Bus indicator is designed to help you use our services with ease while still following current social distancing guidance. Integrated within the live bus map in our app, you can now see how busy your bus is likely to be using a simple colour code – green, amber or dark amber.
The information we’re using is taken from current trends in travel and is specific to your local bus route. We’re using data gathered from the previous journeys on that trip to show you where the busy buses are which will help you plan your travel.
You might occasionally see a blue bus, which means we haven’t yet gathered enough data for that journey but the bus is still on route.
Click the three lines in the top left corner. From here you can plan journeys, buy tickets or track your bus.
The app refreshes every 20 seconds. You'll see an orange circle turning white as it refreshes.
Zoom in and tap on a bus number and you'll see where the bus currently is on the route.
Yes, you can. Pinch the screen with two fingers and move the map.
Just tap on the blue circle with a white arrow. Your location on the map will show as a pulsating blue dot.
You can use the interactive map to find bus stops close by. You can also use the search bar to find a specific bus stop by searching for a location, postcode or the bus your need.
The 'Plan a journey' section helps you find a certain bus and view its timetable. You can download timetables directly from our website.
From the menu, tap on ‘Tickets’ to find all the mobile tickets available in your area. If you’re in the interactive map, tap on the ticket icon and from there you can buy tickets as well as view your active and previously purchased tickets.
No, a ticket can only be used on the device it was bought on.
