Stagecoach launches ticketing scheme with BT
Stagecoach has launched its first ever UK-wide corporate ticketing scheme, in partnership with BT Group.
The scheme means that all employees who work at BT or EE Contact Centres across the UK will have access to a 10% saving on 7- and 28-day MegaRider tickets. The offer is valid across all of Stagecoach’s operating companies who run services in the BT and EE Contact Centre areas.
The scheme makes use of developments within the Stagecoach Bus App, allowing organisations across the UK to partner with Stagecoach to offer their employees discounted tickets when purchased using the app. This app development is part of Stagecoach Solutions, a range of sustainable options as an alternative to traditional bus services to help people continue their more flexible public transport commute. This includes tailored shuttle buses, on demand services and discounted corporate travel to support what Stagecoach describes as a growing desire of companies to put sustainability at the heart of their business.
“This is also a fantastic opportunity for us to test and learn more about our current B2B offering” – Harriet Hughes-Payne, Sales and Marketing Director for Stagecoach
Harriet Hughes-Payne, Sales and Marketing Director for Stagecoach, said: “We are delighted to have launched our first major business to business ticketing scheme with BT Group. It gives us a brilliant opportunity to partner with another large organisation where we can support modal shift from cars to bus, whilst also offering great savings on our tickets for BT Group’s employees.
“This is also a fantastic opportunity for us to test and learn more about our current B2B offering and assess the possible impact of similar schemes at a national level going forward.”
