Q. Are you only accepting contactless payments now?

A. Many of our tickets are available to buy online and can be loaded on to a StagecoachSmart card, meaning there’s no need to carry cash.If you’re in charge of paying for someone’s school or university travel, you can now purchase a mobile ticket on our app and send it to any other registered Stagecoach Bus App user.

Q.  Are your travel shops and ticket offices still closed?  

A. Yes but customers who need to travel can buy tickets on our website or on our app and can continue to pay by contactless or trying to have the exact change on our buses and timetable information can be found for your area on the latest timetables page. 

Q. I'm not able to travel due to Coronavirus and I won't be using the bus for now, can I have a refund?
