We know many of you will be looking for information for how lockdown will affect our services. We're working hard to keep our services running for essential journeys, however there may have been some changes to timetables in your area. Please check our latest timetables for more information.
We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you. You can keep up to date checking our main Coronavirus page.
All you need is a contactless-enabled card or device, or mobile set up with Apple Pay or Google Pay
- It's secure - contactless payments have the same level of protection as Chip and PIN payments
Look for the contactless symbol on your credit or debit card, or ensure your contactless-enabled phone or device is set up
Then, board any Stagecoach bus and instead of paying with cash, simply tap your contactless-enabled credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or Google Pay on our reader to pay with ease. Wait for the beep, collect your ticket and hop on board
Contactless payments can be used for all singles, returns and day tickets
For weekly travel cards, you can also pay this way. Simply tap your payment card or device onto the reader and wait for the beep. The driver will then ask for your StagecoachSmart card to be placed on the reader to load your ticket
See below for terms and conditions.
