Travel with your Smartcard!

Register your StagecoachSmart card

StagecoachSmart is an easy way of buying your travel tickets. 

It's a clever card that stores your tickets, and it's reusable - so you can top it up to travel again and again. 

When you buy a Stagecoach 7 day MegaRider or some TravelMaster 7 day tickets the driver will load it onto a StagecoachSmart card for you. 

Once you have your StagecoachSmart card, you should keep it and use it to travel again and again. Please don't throw it away. 

Buying tickets on the bus

You can buy Stagecoach and TravelMaster  (CityBus, CityWide, RConnect and SYConnect) 1 day and 7 day tickets from your bus driver when you hand them your smartcard on the bus. 


Buying tickets online

Top up your StagecoachSmart card with Stagecoach 7 day, 28 day and Xtra recurring monthly payment tickets on our Bus Tickets page

Once you've been issued with a StagecoachSmart card, hold on to it, and keep on using it to store your tickets.
