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 you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. 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

Stagecoach Manchester’s 7 day adult tickets will switch to its smart card ticketing platform from Wednesday 11th May, allowing passengers to travel using reusable cards instead of paper tickets.
The 7 day adult tickets are the latest addition to the StagecoachSmart card, as the 28 day and Xtra tickets are already available on the platform. Customers can top up their StagecoachSmart cards online, while the 7 day tickets can also be purchased on the bus.
Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Christopher Bowles, said: “Adding the 7 day adult tickets to the StagecoachSmart card makes it even easier and more convenient for customers to travel by bus. Once you've been issued with a smart card, you should hold on to it and keep using it to store your tickets for travel. You can even buy your tickets online in advance.”
All StagecoachSmart cards registered at stagecoachbus.com between 11th May – 10th June 2016 will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win one of 50 prizes of a month’s free travel with Stagecoach Manchester.
