Coronavirus Update Close

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.

You must wear a face covering throughout your journey, unless you are exempt. Find out more on our travelling safely pages for England, Wales and Scotland.

Getting Back to School Safely

Stay safe when you travel
From Monday 15 June you must wear a face covering (unless exempt) on public transport in England.
We have put in place extensive enhanced measures to keep buses clean and safe so you can feel confident about using them. 
There is an enhanced cleaning regime which means buses are cleaned daily, with a particular focus on key touch points, with additional in-service cleaning. 
To keep our staff and customers a little safer we are encouraging contactless payments or you can buy tickets online or on the Stagecoach Bus App. 

Social distancing measures are now in place on all bus services  and you can find our 10 point guide to travelling safely  here.
