Half term travel treat for youngsters

13 Feb 2019

Half term has just got a little easier as Stagecoach North East brings its value for money travel offer once again for families in Teesside and Hartlepool to enjoy a cheaper day out around the region.

The popular bus travel for 10p for the under-16s is available from Saturday 16th February until Sunday 24th February when bought with adult Teesside daytripper, Hartlepool dayrider, Teesside/Hartlepool dayrider PLUS or Teesside/Hartlepool megarider or megarider PLUS tickets.

The local bus operator is helping to keep the young ones happy with lots of activities and entertainment on offer across the Tees Valley, such as catching a film at Cineworld in Middlesbrough, skating at Billingham Forum, seeing the wildlife at Saltholme Wildlife Reserve or getting all at sea with the Hartlepool Maritime Experience.

There are many indoor and outdoor events and activities taking place around Hartlepool and Teesside and more information can be found at, and

Up to two children aged under 16 can travel for just ten pence when they board with a full paying adult, and up to four under five year olds can travel for free. All tickets are available from the driver onboard local Stagecoach North East services.

Nathan Stanislawski, Operations Manager at Stagecoach North East’s Teesside depot, said: “To help keep the children entertained during the school holidays, we have once again brought back this great offer. There are so many things to see and do, with movies, shopping, sports and leisure activities on our doorstep, and this great value ticket means families can have an affordable day out over half term without the hassle of driving or parking.”

The daytripper ticket enables travel on both Stagecoach and Arriva services within the boroughs of Stockton and Middlesbrough, with the dayrider giving one day’s unlimited travel in Hartlepool. The combined dayrider plus ticket brings unlimited journeys on all Stagecoach buses throughout Teesside and Hartlepool. A 7-day megarider adult ticket allows unrestricted travel on all Stagecoach buses throughout Teesside or Hartlepool and a 7-day megarider PLUS for travel all week across both regions.
