In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.
Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page

From Sunday 2 November 2014, there will be changes and improvements to a number of the bus routes and timetables throughout Stroud and South Gloucestershire.
Stagecoach is introducing a new network for Stroud with services numbered 61, 62, 63, 64, 66 and 67. A key part of the new timetable is improved punctuality and reliability with times adjusted to reflect current traffic conditions and more recovery time before the start of each journey.
Some routes see more buses throughout the day. This includes the Gloucester to Stroud service via Brookthorpe and Whiteshill which will now operate every 30 minutes with all journeys extending beyond Stroud to Nailsworth and Forest Green. In addition the frequency of buses between Stonehouse and Gloucester will double to every 30 minutes.
During the evening there will be more buses between Stroud, Stonehouse and Gloucester with an hourly service and on Saturday nights, buses will run for the first time in years between Stroud and Cheltenham. In addition, a new evening service will be introduced between Stroud and Cashes Green. There will also be more buses on Sundays on routes into Gloucester from Stroud.
Rupert Cox, managing director, Stagecoach West, said: “This is an exciting time for bus services in the Stroud and South Gloucestershire area. These are the biggest changes to timetables and routes for the area for decades. We believe that they will encourage more people to travel by bus especially as our most popular season ticket – the 1 week Stroud megarider’ will be reduced to just £10 during November.”
There are many other changes to routes and timetables, details of which are now available on buses and on our website www.stagecoachbus.com/west.
