Stagecoach launch discount offer for February

30 Jan 2017


The bus company have launched a sale on all megarider and unirider tickets purchased online, where customers can receive 10% off zonal tickets valid across the East Scotland region.


From 1 February, customers buying a megarider or unirider ticket can receive 10% off their ticket when purchased from  Customers buying a new megarider Xtra ticket can also receive 10% off their first ticket, with subsequent tickets returning to normal price, as Xtra tickets are issued based on a recurring monthly payment.


The offer applies to tickets bought via, and require a special code to be entered at the checkout for the discount to be applied to their order.  The discount codes are available at


Jon Oakey, Acting Managing Director, Stagecoach East Scotland said: “Once again we've launched a megarider offer for February, but this year we've kept the offer simple by providing a discount code valid for all tickets you can buy online for travel within East Scotland.  This means the discount applies to unirider tickets for the first time and applies to all megarider tickets, regardless of the time period they are valid for, as you can buy a 7 day, 4 week, 13 week, 52 week or monthly ticket option at


Stagecoach megarider tickets are issued on a StagecoachSmart card, which can store more than one ticket product at any time, and allows the customer to carry a handy card instead of cash.  By retaining the card and topping it up with a new ticket when required, boarding times are faster.


Jon added: "We encourage customers to register their StagecoachSmart card online as it means they can be protected against loss or theft.  If the card is registered and the individual loses their card, by contacting our dedicated helpdesk, a new card can be issued with the remaining travel loaded onto it so that the customer doesn't lose out (if there are 5 or more days travel remaining on the card)."  Register your StagecoachSmart card.


Stagecoach has three times been independently found to have the best value bus fares in Britain as part of a TAS survey and the most recent UK Bus Passenger Survey also showed that passengers had voted Stagecoach the best value major bus operator in the UK.*
