Stagecoach: The facts

The Stagecoach Group is a leading transportation company in the United Kingdom. Stagecoach is arguably best known for its buses and coaches, which can be seen on roads all across Britain. Stagecoach, however, is also a major player in the UK railway network. Stagecoach bus and train information can be found at Stagecoach.com.

UK buses

Subsidiaries The Stagecoach Group runs several UK-based bus and coach companies, such as Stagecoach, Scottish City Link, Megabus and Unirider. Stagecoach The Stagecoach subsidiary runs many local bus services, running within and in between towns and villages of the UK primarily.
Stagecoaches operate in specific UK regions, ranging from the South West of England up to the Scottish Highlands, with a range of single, return and day and group travel tickets available so that travellers can make the most of intra and inter town bus routes run by Stagecoach. Scottish City Link Scottish City Link buses run between six major Scottish cities: Inverness, Perth, Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow as well as Blackpool in Lancashire and a ferry link to the Northern Irish capital city of Belfast. Megabus Megabus is a UK-wide inter city coach service operated by Stagecoach.
Megabuses offer extremely cheap fares on long distance travel, particularly when users book their travel many months in advance. Unirider As its name suggests, the Unirider subsidiary is a specialised student service, although it can be used by all members of the public.
Students gain massive savings on Unirider services, which link university and college campuses to town and city centres.
