We want to reassure you that, we’re still running our revised services and we are continuing to take our lead from the latest government guidelines. For those with an essential need to travel, there are some things we can all do to help keep everyone safe, including practising social distancing by sitting on your own wherever possible, using contactless payment if you can and taking your newspaper home with you. Please check service updates for up to date information or see our Coronavirus page

To avoid toddler tantrums and ensure happy passengers, we have created this run-down of the best travel games for kids to keep them occupied...
Play games via free Wi-Fi
Over a thousand Stagecoach buses offer free Wi-Fi. While you can use them to check your emails or update your social media accounts, your little ones can also get online if they’ve got a tablet or you’ll let them borrow your smartphone.
Once connected, your child can play their favourite games on children’s websites like Disney and Cartoon Network — featuring all their favourite characters.
With top tech at their fingertips, the journey will fly by. Plus with USB charging ports on many Stagecoach buses, the fun doesn’t have to end with the low battery warning.
They say the art of conversation is dead, but one of the easiest and often best ways to keep your child occupied on the bus is by talking to them. If you’re picking them up from school, chat to them about how their day was or on weekends, why not ask what they’d like to watch on the TV or have for tea?
You could even turn chatting into a game that will really engage their imagination and creativity. Give your child the name of a character and ask them to create a story around their adventures, offering potential plot twists as you go. It’s a great way to get them thinking — who knows where the story will take you!
