What ID do I need to use a StagecoachSmart student card?

You must carry photographic student ID at all times when using your student smart card and the name on your StagecoachSmart student card must match the name on printed on your student ID.

You must be prepared to show your photographic student ID if requested by a member of Stagecoach staff. Inability to show relevant ID may result in the confiscation of your student smart card and you will need to pay the full fare.

Acceptable student ID varies between Stagecoach regions. Please consult the table to check which ID you will need to support your student smart card.
