Coronavirus Update Close

National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. 

In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity. 

The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you.

Stagecoach plays cupid for Lancashire passengers

10 Feb 2015


Bus operator Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire is celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special promotion for people in Lancashire.

To celebrate the season of love, the company is encouraging people to take a single bus journey this February by dropping off over 10,000 free single tickets across Lancashire.

The tickets will give people a free single journey on Stagecoach routes 109 and 113 which run from Preston to Chorleyvia Leyland for two weeks. 

Elisabeth Tasker, managing director for Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, said: “We want to show our passengers how special they are to us this Valentine’s Day by offering them a free journey – we’re also looking to woo people who don’t usually use the bus and hopefully persuade them to give it a try!

“Getting the bus is a great way of meeting new people. All generations take the bus and are often looking to strike up a conversation to help pass the time. We’re hoping our special ‘#StagecoachSingles’ promotion might spark off a conversation and just give people a bit of laugh on Valentine’s Day. After all, you never know who you might meet on the bus!”
