Following government announcements on the roadmap out of lockdown and plans to gradually restore greater normality to everyday lives, we're making plans to get more services back on the road, including school services from 8th March. Please continue to check our latest timetables page for more information.
Let's keep working together to make travel as safe as possible. We're still doing enhanced cleaning and limiting available seats. You can help by avoiding busy times, using contactless payment where you can, keeping your distance and taking your litter with you.
You must wear a face covering throughout your journey, unless you are exempt.

Stagecoach South has invested more than £25 million over the past 5 years in hundreds of new buses for local communities. Stagecoach is also making a multi-million pound investment in new technology. The company recently launched a new, fully mobile, UK Bus website which lets customers check live running times for their services and buy travel from their smartphone.
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.
The tickets will be available to purchase on board the bus. Full details can be found here: www.stagecoachbus.com
*Up to 3 children can travel for 10p each when accompanied by an adult with a dayrider gold. If travelling alone, those aged 15 years and under can buy a child dayrider gold for just £3 each (throughout the school holidays).
