Bedfordshire termrider – save with a termrider ticket

If you're aged 18 or under and in full time education, we've got just the ticket! Our Stagecoach East termrider gives you unlimited bus travel during term times!

Why you'll love your termrider

You'll love your termrider as it offers:

  • unlimited travel at weekends and in the evenings
  • the same price each term - spread the total cost evenly
  • cheaper than buying lots of day tickets

Your termrider now comes on a StagecoachSmart Card, an electronic card with a chip that stores your ticket for use on the bus. No more paper tickets!

Who can buy a termrider ticket

Anyone aged 18 or under and in full-time education can buy and use a termrider ticket. 

Your termrider can only be used by you - it's non-transferable.

We have two tickets available for Bedfordshire:

Bedford termrider tickets are £170 per term.

Bedfordshire termrider plus tickets are £280 per term.


Where can you use your termrider

Bedford termrider tickets are valid within the Bedford Megarider area but they are not valid for use on the X5 service.

Bedfordshire termrider plus tickets are valid within the Bedfordshire Megarider Plus area * as well as on the X5 between St. Neots and Milton Keynes Rail Station

*excluding Route 99

These tickets will allow you to travel on our 800 routes, but will no longer guarantee you a seat.

If you intend to travel on the X5 service outside of Bedfordshire, or on Route 99, you'll need to purchase an East Megarider Gold ticket (which is available to bus weekly, 4 weekly and as an Xtra ticket).

For more details on how to purchase  East Megarider Gold tickets, please visit our tickets page.
