Stagecoach makes Scottish coach fares simpler
From 7 March, Stagecoach companies across Scotland will be introducing a simpler to understand range of tickets and fares. The new range will make it easier for passengers to be confident that they are always getting the best value travel for the journeys they make, and acknowledges the increased flexibility people are now looking for.
Among the improvements for customers will be the introduction of a new flexible ticket, the Flexi 5, offering five day tickets for the price of four, to help meet the changes in travel patterns when Covid-19 pandemic restrictions begin to ease. The Flexi 5 will be available via the Stagecoach mobile app. Customers will be able to purchase a bundle of five tickets and have the whole month to use them, offering better value and flexibility than the traditional weekly megarider ticket.
Sam Greer, Stagecoach Regional Director for Scotland, said “Stagecoach is a business well known for innovation and we have taken time over the past year to really understand from our customers, staff and the wider public how they want to travel in the future and how we can make it simpler for them to choose bus.
“With simpler to understand fares, more flexible tickets and the use of technology to allow customers to track where their bus is, including how busy your bus service could be through our App, this complements contactless payment facilities on all buses.
“Improving the range of our tickets available for purchase both online and through our app and introducing a range of bespoke solutions for business customers means we are well placed to welcome customers onto our services and play a key role in rebuilding the economy and reconnecting our communities when restrictions can be relaxed.”
