Coronavirus Update Close

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, please wear a face covering, if you can.

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

If you have a Cheshire Stored Value Travelcard

Blue Stored Value Travelcards

The Blue Chester Stored Value Travelcard can no longer be used on any bus. It has been replaced by the new Yellow Cheshire Stored Value Travelcard.

If you still have a Blue Chester Stored Value Travelcard with a remaining balance on it, you can either:

  • return it for a full refund or
  • transfer the balance to a new Yellow Cheshire Stored Value Travelcard

Find out how to transfer your balance or return a Blue Stored Travelcard .

Yellow Stored Value Travelcards

All Yellow Cheshire Travelcards are accepted on Stagecoach buses. Initially, you’ll only be able to use your card to buy paper single tickets.

Single tickets are sold at the standard price.

If you have a Zone Travelcard

Zone Travelcards can still be used on buses when you show a receipt with a valid expiry date. No new applications are currently being accepted.

These cards can no longer be topped up on Stagecoach buses. Existing Zone Travelcard holders can top up their pass at the Chester Visitor Information Centre  at the Town Hall.
