Coronavirus Update Close

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.

Corporate staff travel

Please find detailed travel options below for Corporate annual megarider tickets,   travel vouchers and student tickets.

Annual megarider 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 find full price list below:

A smart alternative

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:  or  call  our  Customer  Communications  Team  on  0191 566 0231.


Travel vouchers

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.


Please  find  our  full  price  list  below:

Student tickets

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.

Student tickets
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.
