No more fumbling around for change for your bus fare as Stagecoach introduce new ways to pay

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 11 Sep 2017

New ways to pay for your bus travel have been unveiled by Stagecoach, giving users more choice and easier travel.

The addition of Apple Pay and Android Pay with the Stagecoach Bus smartphone app, means customers travelling throughout Lincolnshire, Kingston upon Hull, North Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire can buy tickets easier.

The app also provides customers with journey planning, next-stop information and live bus tracking to make their journeys even smoother. It is available free of charge for Apple and Android devices.

Payments via the app can also be made by PayPal or via debit or credit card so travellers can buy and download day and weekly bus tickets straight to their mobile phone.

Although the Stagecoach Bus app, launched last year a new update now includes a card scanner feature which customers can use when adding a new payment method at 'Secure checkout' using a debit/credit card.

Furthermore, customers can also use fingerprint recognition to confirm their password when making purchases within the Stagecoach Bus App.

The addition of Apple Pay and Android Pay through the app complements the existing suite of payment options offered by Stagecoach which includes traditional cash payments and StagecoachSmart ticketing.

Stagecoach East Midlands managing director Michelle Hargreaves said: “This latest development is another example of ways we are making travel easier and more convenient for our customers. We know our passengers want simple, quick transactions and reliable information about their services and we are investing heavily in the technology to deliver that.

“Our staff also work hard every single day to deliver high-quality, reliable services. However, we continue to face growing traffic congestion in East Midlands and our passengers urgently need those responsible for the road infrastructure to tackle this issue and help bus networks flourish.”
