Explore Gloucestershire by bus

There's plenty of things to do and see in Gloucestershire, and exploring by bus allows you to enjoy the journey to attractions too. Whether you prefer days out in the countryside, shopping in one of the Cotswold towns, or finding out more about the history of Gloucestershire at the museums, there's options to get there by bus. 

Gloucestershire bus tickets and passes

We offer a range of different tickets and passes for our bus services. For a shorter trip, our single and return tickets are great value - but we also offer several passes which include discounts on regular journeys.

If you're catching more than one bus, or making multiple trips, our dayrider and explorer tickets offer unlimited travel with Stagecoach for 24 hours. Our megarider offers the same, but for a duration of your choice. 

For our best prices, buy your ticket from the Stagecoach app (download for Apple or Android). Don’t worry – you can still pay the driver in cash if you’d prefer, or with contactless card payments. 

Popular days out by bus 

Here are some of our favourite days out by bus. 

Forest of Dean

A great day out at The Forest of Dean 

This ancient forest is a family favourite for days out. Enjoy a relaxing journey along the Dean Forest Railway, or a walk around the magical Puzzlewood. On rainy days, there's still plenty to do from museums to caves. 

If you're looking for a woodland escape, we run several services from Gloucester bus station to the Forest of Dean.
