Student Bus Travel in West Scotland 

You might have heard that we recently updated our bus ticket options to make things more simple! 

This included changing our student bus ticket options so you can now get discounted student bus travel no matter your destination in West Scotland. We’ve kept our popular student Dayriders, four or thirteen week student Megariders, but you can now also buy 7 day student Megariders and student Flexi 5 bundles.

To buy a student bus ticket, you'll need valid student ID - either your NUS, University or College matriculation card or the Unidays app.


Take a look at the map and table below to see which ticket option is best for you...

It’s important that you register your smart card online using its unique 18-digit code on the back as this will protect your tickets.

• Use the ‘My account’ section of the website.
• Contact the StagecoachSmart Helpdesk on 0345 810 1000.

If you have to purchase paper tickets in the interim, keep hold of these and we will advise on the process of claiming a refund if eligible.
