Stagecoach price changes

Stagecoach logo

From Sunday 28 April Stagecoach are changing the price of some bus tickets.

So what’s happening?

Some fares will increase slightly in price, but single fares above £5 will be frozen. Return fares will be capped so they don’t exceed the price of a South East adult dayrider (£7.30).

dayrider and megarider tickets will increase in price – but if you use the Stagecoach bus app, you can still get them cheaper.

Here’s a summary of the new prices:

Why is it cheaper on the Stagecoach Bus App?

Buying and using a ticket on our app is quick and easy to do. It’s faster and more convenient than buying on the bus because you don’t have to wait for the driver to issue your ticket and process your payment. Using mobile tickets helps speed-up the time it takes to board the bus which means that our services are less delayed at busy times when people are queuing to buy their ticket.

Stagecoach hope that by offering mobile tickets at a reduced price, more people will choose to use them. You can always buy your ticket on the bus, but the more people choose to use a mobile ticket, the less time it takes to get on board and the quicker you can get on your way.

The Stagecoach Bus App is available free on the App Store (iPhone) and Google Play (Android). Click the buttons below to download, or search Stagecoach Bus on the App Store or Google Play store.
