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 extends discount travel offer for young people

29 Feb 2016

  • £2 dayrider tickets offer for under 19s extended until after Easter 
  • Promotion offers discounts of up to 47%*
  • Nearly 30,000 discounted tickets bought during initial five week period

Young people across the South East are able to benefit from lower bus fares after Stagecoach extended a national offer. 

Following the successful introduction of a £2 dayrider ticket for under 19s, the offer has been extended for a further six weeks to allow young people to benefit over the Easter period. 

More than 28,000 tickets offering unlimited travel within local ticket zones were sold across Kent and East Sussex during February.

Stagecoach hopes the extension of the offer will help young people get out and about over the Easter holidays when many under 19s have time off from school or college or are travelling to and from work. 

Discounts of up to 47%* are available compared to current dayrider ticket prices and the tickets build on the existing offers Stagecoach has in place for millions of young people across the UK. 

In particular, young people who use bus services to travel to job interviews, appointments and part-time employment can benefit from the extension of this cut-price offer.

Stagecoach South East managing director Philip Norwell said: “We are delighted that this discounted ticket has been so successful and are pleased to be able to announce the extension of the offer until 10 April. We hope that young people continue to see the benefit of the tickets and take advantage to get out and about over Easter.

“We are already providing very good value tickets for children and students across the region. This promotion makes taking the bus even better value for money and we hope lots of young people will continue to take advantage of the offer.” 

The dayrider U19 ticket will be available to purchase on board the bus. Full details can be found here.


Bus  travel  is  the  most  popular  mode  of  transport  used by Britain’s commuters,  with  5.2  billion  bus journeys in the UK each year. Stagecoach has three times been independently assessed as offering the lowest fares of any major bus operator in the UK.

Stagecoach also previously launched the country’s first long-term nationwide discount for jobseekers, giving those with a JobCentre Plus travel card a 50% discount on their bus travel to help them find employment. The offer has been taken up by over 350,000 job seekers since it was launched in 2012. The scheme is funded entirely on a commercial basis by Stagecoach without any public sector support.

*Discounts in each Stagecoach dayrider zone will differ depending on the current price of a Dayrider ticket in that area.
