For the latest travel information for England, Wales and Scotland, see our Coronavirus page.
In England and Wales, we've safely made more seats available on local buses, when busy. All forward facing seats are available but standing or using other seats is not allowed. For full details go to our travelling safely in Wales page or travelling safely in England page
Please continue to keep your distance, where possible and wear a face covering throughout your journey, unless you’re exempt.
Our adult 7 day tickets are sold on a StagecoachSmart card, rather than a paper ticket. Your ticket will be loaded onto a StagecoachSmart card* when you buy an adult 7 day ticket on the bus or you can register and buy adult 7 day tickets online.
When you get on the bus simply place your smart card on top of the reader and wait for the green light to show before you remove the card. Your StagecoachSmart card can be used time and time again. If you have any problems, the driver will help you.
*there is a £1 non-refundable charge for all new StagecoachSmart cards issued on the bus
Your ticket is loaded onto your StagecoachSmart card. You can ask the driver to add a new ticket to your card on the bus or you can buy a new ticket online.
When you buy online you can choose the start date for your new ticket but you do need to order your ticket in advance.
You can also get discounts with longer term tickets (28 day megarider and megarider Xtra) when you buy online using your smart card.
