Passengers travelling across Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway Council boundaries will now benefit from a new value ticket to make cross border travelling more affordable. From today, Stagecoach West Scotland has launched its new Megarider Plus ticket which is valid for travel within their current Ayrshire, Arran and Dumfries and Galloway megarider boundaries.
Costing £32 online and £35 from the driver for a 7 day ticket it offers unlimited travel across the entire Ayrshire, Arran and Dumfries and Galloway network. Customers can benefit from even greater savings online when buying 28 day tickets or signing up for the megarider Xtra ticket which allows customers to renew their ticket through automatic monthly payments.
Stagecoach, which has been independently assessed as offering the lowest fares of any major bus operator in the UK, carries more than 30 million passengers a year on its bus services in the West of Scotland.
Edward Hodgson, Managing Director, Stagecoach West Scotland said:
“We are delighted to introduce our new Megarider Plus ticket which will give our customers further travel options. This ticket offers such great value covering our entire Ayrshire, Arran and Dumfries and Galloway networks and is another reason why the bus is a great way to travel.”
