We all need to do whatever we can to protect each other from Coronavirus, so in line with the latest government guidance, there are measures in place to help you to travel with confidence, including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering when using public transport, throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page.
There are temporary timetables in Wales between 25 October and 9 November due to a two-week Welsh Government lockdown.

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!
