Stagecoach to cut the cost of travel in January  

Posted: 23rd December 2019

Today (23 December), Stagecoach announces a New Year promotion that will see commuters across Scotland receive one week’s free bus travel.

The promotion will apply to all four-week megarider tickets purchased online between New Year’s Day until 31st January (inclusive) in Scotland.

With rail and other operator fares set to increase in January, Stagecoach believes this is a time when most people are looking to make savings.  The promotional offer has been introduced to encourage people to ditch the car or switch to bus from rail and choose a more environmentally friendly way to commute.

Robert Andrew, Regional Director Scotland and Wales, said: “It is great to be able to offer our customers a huge cost saving at this time of year and thank them for their custom while helping with the back to work commute.  We hope that it will encourage other commuters to choose Stagecoach and see the many other benefits we have to offer.

We want to make it as easy and affordable as possible for people to use the bus.  We provide a service which is accessible, convenient and available and pride ourselves on being a reliable bus service in the local communities and cities that we serve.”

One weeks’ free travel applies to four week megariders purchased online via www.stagecoachbus.com/scotlandsale
