How does Stagecoach Connect work?

Stagecoach Connect is an on-demand booking service that enables NHS workers to get to work and back with ease and in comfort. The technology behind the app ensures an optimum experience by allowing you to track where the bus is, to change or cancel a booking and to book up to a week ahead in line with your shift patterns.
Once registered on the app you can select the time you wish to arrive at the hospital for each booking, select your location, the app will give you a designated pick-up point, all you need to do is ensure you are there on time. We’ll let you know when the bus is due by text message, so you don’t have to wait too long.
