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.
StagecoachSmart is the smart way to buy your Megarider, U19 or student ticket. It means that when you buy your Megarider ticket online for 7 days, 4 weeks or monthly travel, or your 7 day, 4 week or 13 week U19/student ticket, your ticket is supplied on a smart card instead of a paper ticket. Once you have your smart card, then it's yours to keep and reuse. You can top it up by buying more tickets online, or you can buy a Megarider, U19 or student ticket for 7 days from the driver on the bus.
If you don't already have a StagecoachSmart card, our driver will give you a card when you buy your Megarider, U19 or student ticket on the bus. Keep hold of it as you can top it up by buying your next ticket from the driver, or by buying one online.
There is a £1 charge for any new smart card issued on the bus, so be smart with your card! There is no charge if you already have a card and present it to the driver to load a new ticket onto it. There is also no charge for a new smart card if you buy your ticket online.
The Megarider, U19 or student ticket you requested has been loaded onto the card and all you need to do when you make your next journey is place it on the ticket machine.
