The app looks different, what’s happened?

A new version (2.0) of the Stagecoach Bus App is now available to iPhone users. Your app will have updated automatically if you have 'Automatic App Updates' turned on.


How do I update the app?

If you have 'Automatic App Updates' turned on, your app will update automatically. Otherwise visit the App Store to update.


I’m getting prompted to update the app but it’s not working.

For the app to work properly, please make sure your iPhone software is version 10 or later. 


My app updated automatically and is now freezing/crashing.

This shouldn't be happening and there are few things you can check to ensure a smooth update:

  • force close the app
  • log out and back in again
  • make sure your iPhone software is version 10

If you're still having problems, please get in touch via the  app contact form.


If I update the app will my tickets disappear?

No, as long as you're using the same device your tickets are safe. If you've updated and can't find your tickets there are a few things you can try:

  • check if you're still logged in
  • if you are, log out and back in again
  • check 'My Tickets' to see if the ticket has expired

Can I move the map to get a better idea of where I am?

Yes, you can. Pinch the screen with two fingers and move the map.


I’ve lost my place on the map, how do I get back to my location?

Just tap on the blue circle with a white arrow. Your location on the map will show as a pulsating blue dot.


How can I find a bus stop?

You can use the interactive map to find bus stops close by. You can also use the search bar to find a specific bus stop by searching for a location, postcode or the bus your need.


I’m looking for a timetable but can’t find that option.
