In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.
Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales it is compulsory to wear a three layer face covering on public transport. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page
Our adult 7 day tickets are sold on a StagecoachSmart card, rather than a paper ticket. Your ticket will be loaded onto a StagecoachSmart card* when you buy an adult 7 day ticket on the bus or you can register and buy adult 7 day tickets online.
When you get on the bus simply place your smart card on top of the reader and wait for the green light to show before you remove the card. Your StagecoachSmart card can be used time and time again. If you have any problems, the driver will help you.
*there is a £1 non-refundable charge for all new StagecoachSmart cards issued on the bus
Your ticket is loaded onto your StagecoachSmart card. You can ask the driver to add a new ticket to your card on the bus or you can buy a new ticket online.
When you buy online you can choose the start date for your new ticket but you do need to order your ticket in advance.
You can also get discounts with longer term tickets (28 day megarider and megarider Xtra) when you buy online using your smart card.
