Get back on board - half price tickets for jobseekers

Stagecoach is proud to offer jobseeker discounts to help you get back on board and back into work.  If you’re a jobseeker who has a Jobcentre Plus travel card, you can get half price single and return tickets.


How to get your discount 

Simply show your Jobcentre Plus travel card to the driver when you buy a single or return ticket. You may also be asked to show your travel card during your journey. You’ll get 50% off the full ticket price to the nearest 5p.

Apply for a Jobcentre Plus travel card 

You can apply for a Jobcentre Plus travel card if you claim:

  • Jobseekers Allowance (JSA) or
  • Incapacity Benefit or
  • Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or
  • Income Support

and if:

  • you’re 18 and over
  • you’ve been unemployed between three months and one year

 You’ll need to apply for a Jobcentre Plus travel card at your local Jobcentre Plus office.

When you can use your travel card 

You can use your Jobcentre Plus travel card for most single and return journeys.

You won’t be able to use your travel pass on Megabus, Supertram or Citylink services.  A few local services may be excluded and some areas don’t accept passes for return journeys.
