With a Stagecoach Under 19 ID card, or any form of valid ID, you can buy discounted bus tickets for all Stagecoach buses in Newcastle, South Shields, Sunderland, Teesside and Hartlepool.
Provided you have ID, you just need to present it to your driver each time you buy or use an Under 19 ticket (including mobile tickets) on board.
All customers aged between 5 and 18 years old must provide proof that they are Under 19.
ID must be presented at the point of use and purchase, or when presenting an existing ticket on board.
Valid forms of ID include:
Keep an eye on the expiry date, to make sure yours is valid and you always benefit from this great saving!
The new Under 19 ID card is FREE each year and are valid from now until 31st August 2022 or your 19th birthday, whichever comes first.
Then, you just need to post it to the following address: Under 19 ID Card, Stagecoach, The Wheatsheaf Offices, Sunderland SR5 1AQ.
You should receive your card within a week. However, our ID card makers can become very busy at the start of the new academic year, so please allow 2 weeks in August and September.
Please note: you can no longer obtain a card in person at The Wheatsheaf Offices in Sunderland.
A replacement for lost or stolen cards costs £3.00. To replace an Under 19 ID card, complete the Under 19 application form again and send this to us with a passport-sized photograph, then make a debit or credit card payment over the phone. Simply submit your replacement application and we will contact you directly to arrange payment.
