Back to school with Stagecoach

Getting back to school safely 

Last updated: 19/08/2021

 

We are busy preparing our services to welcome students back on board in September. We operate an enhanced cleaning regime on all vehicles, paying special attention to the key touch points including handrails, bells, seats and poles.  

 

Purchasing 2021/22 tickets

To help minimise contact we've moved from paper based school tickets to StagecoachSmart card tickets, with all annual & term passes available to purchase online only. Each pass will be loaded onto a StagecoachSmart card and delivered direct to a nominated address within 3-5 working days.
