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 you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.
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

You’ll love your termrider as it’s:
Your termrider comes on a StagecoachSmart card, an electronic card with a chip that stores your ticket for use on the bus. No more paper tickets!
Buy your termrider online with the benefits of a smart card
Buying your bus pass online is quick and easy and we will deliver your bus pass to you in up to three working days. You will receive a Student Smart Card to use on the bus each time you travel. Having a Smart Card means you can reuse this again and again. Remember to carry your student ID with you every time you travel. No student ID – your bus pass could be confiscated.
Receiving a Student Smart Card also gives you the peace of mind that if your bus pass is lost or stolen we will replace it for free!
