In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practise social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, wear a face covering if you can, use contactless payment and take your litter with you.

Stagecoach Group has launched its 2017 Champions Awards for employees – and is inviting bus and coach passengers in the South West to nominate their favourite member of staff for the Customer Service Champions Award.
This is the eighth year of the company’s Group-wide Champions Awards that recognise staff achievements in a number of categories including safety, environment, health, innovation, community and customer service.
The awards are open to employees across Stagecoach’s bus and rail operations in the UK and North America and around 150 staff members have been honoured for their outstanding efforts over the past seven years.
Stagecoach South West is calling on the help of local bus customers to nominate their favourite employee – it could be a driver, customer service assistant, inspector or any other member of the Stagecoach team.
All employees nominated will be in with a chance of winning a gold, silver or bronze champions award along with a cash prize.
In addition, customers who nominate a winning employee will also receive a cash prize*. The customer who nominates a gold award-winning employee will receive £500, the customer who puts forward a silver award-winning employee will receive £250 and the customer who nominates a bronze award-winning employee will receive £125.
Managing Director of Stagecoach South West, Bob Dennison, said: “We know many of our staff have a great relationship with our customers and the job they do is appreciated by many local people. This is a chance for our customers to help local staff gain recognition at a national level as well as potentially winning a prize themselves.
“We hope people will take the time to nominate their favourite Stagecoach employee across the South West.”
Customers who wish to nominate an employee should visit www.stagecoachbus.com or email [email protected] to give details of the staff member and an explanation of why they believe the employee deserves to win an award. The deadline for nominations is midnight on Friday 26 May 2017.

*Please note – in cases where more than one customer has nominated a winning employee, the prize will go to the customer who emailed their nomination first. If the nomination is made by a group of people, one cash prize will be awarded to the group, not to each individual within the group. Employees or family members of staff who work for any Stagecoach company are not eligible for these cash prizes.
