Stagecoach Adds Smart Card To Replace Tickets

Monday July 9 2012

BUS operator Stagecoach has introduced a new ticketing scheme that will allow passengers to ditch paper tickets.

The scheme – which is operational on 150 Stagecoach buses across Barnsley and the Dearne Valley - allows passengers to store credit on an electronic card instead of using tickets.

It means that monthly passes will be able to be renewed automatically through direct debit, rather than having to be done manually.

It's about time stagecoach in Barnsley caught up with the rest of the stagecoach network around the country. It's so much easier to buy your tickets now.

when you buy a megarider online from the Stagecoach website you will receive a card like a credit card. Then when you get on the bus you scan it on top of the machine so no need once a week to buy a new ticket from the driver. The cash will be deducted from your bank account every week/month/year

If it convenient to get the bus while your car is in the garage or you cant get it out, why not use it all the time Laura?

Move with the times, and use it or lose it as they say.
