Can I pay part cash/part contactless on the bus?

Unfortunately you can't use a mix of cash and contactless. We wish we had that technology but it isn't available yet. It would also slow down the whole boarding process. No one wants that!

With contactless, you can buy tickets up to £30 or £45 (depending on your area). This includes both paper and StagecoachSmart card tickets.

You'll have the £30 limit if you're travelling in these areas: 

 South East
 North East
 South Wales

Areas with the £45 limit

 South West
 Merseyside & South Lancs
 East Midlands
 East Scotland
 West Scotland
