National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons.
In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity.
The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.
We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you. Stay up to date on our Coronavirus page.
Please find detailed travel options below for Corporate annual megarider tickets, travel vouchers and student tickets.
We offer discounted annual megarider tickets for your staff, with options available for each of our North East operating areas. These tickets are solely for the use of a named, individual ticket holder.
This option allows your organisation to pay for employees' tickets in bulk and typically offers up to 10% discount. Participating staff would normally then reimburse the organisation according to its own terms and conditions, usually on a monthly basis.

Please note: With the introduction of our Smart (paperless) tickets, the cost of online tickets is now significantly lower than those bought on-board. This has resulted in the Corporate Travel Scheme offering a less significant discount than it used to.
Corporate travel representatives are therefore encouraged to consider our Megarider Xtra scheme. Xtra offers customers the chance to manage their own account, online, without the involvement of their company. Customers benefit from our cheaper, online prices and can even set up automatic monthly payments, which utilises Smart technology to automatically renew the customer's Megarider each month, on their reusable smart card.
For more information on Smart and Megarider Xtra, please visit: https://www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/national/stagecoachsmart or call our Customer Communications Team on 0191 566 0231.
As part of the Corporate Travel Scheme, we also offer booklets of ticket vouchers. These vouchers are available in most of our current ticket formats (weekly and daily) and are sold as booklets of 50.
Voucher books are a secure alternative to handing out travel expenses to clients and staff who could use our services to complete their journeys and reach appointments.

A new addition to the Corporate Travel Scheme is the unirider student ticket, available at the online price to offer even bigger savings. This option is ideal for universities and colleges supporting full time students with their travel costs.
Unirider tickets can be purchased as Annual tickets or by Term, and each ticket is valid for unlimited bus travel on all Stagecoach North East services, when presented alongside a valid student ID card.
Your organisation can order as many or as few unirider tickets as required, with additional discounts made available on some large orders, subject to confirmation at the point of purchase.
To join our Corporate Travel Scheme, your organisation will need to complete a credit application. Approval will take up to two weeks.
Once your application has been approved, our Customer Communications Team will provide everything you need to start placing orders.
The Customer Communications Team are here to help Monday to Friday 9.00am until 5.00pm.
