The Stagecoach 'Get Back on Board' Scheme Helps Jobseekers Back into Work

Next up are Stagecoach who have kindly responded and sent us this. 

Stagecoach is one of the largest bus operators in the UK and they claim to have the lowest fares of any major bus operator. 

Get back on board - half price tickets for jobseekers

Stagecoach is proud to offer jobseeker discounts to help you get back on board and back into work.  If you’re a jobseeker who has a Jobcentre Plus travel card, you can get half price single and return tickets.

How to get your discount 

Simply show your Jobcentre Plus travel card to the driver when you buy a single or return ticket. You may also be asked to show your travel card during your journey. You’ll get 50% off the full ticket price to the nearest 5p.

Apply for a Jobcentre Plus travel card 

You can apply for a Jobcentre Plus travel card if you claim:

Jobseekers Allowance (JSA) or

Incapacity Benefit or

Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or

Income Support

Universal Credit for 3-9 months (18-24 year olds) or 3-12 months (over 25s). 

and if:

you’re 18 and over

you’ve been unemployed between three months and one year

a Jobcentre Plus Advisor is helping you to find work

You’ll need to apply for a Jobcentre Plus travel card at your local Jobcentre Plus office.

When you can use your travel card 

You can use your Jobcentre Plus travel card for most single and return journeys.

You won’t be able to use your travel pass on Megabus, Supertram or Citylink services.  A few local services may be excluded and some areas don’t accept passes for return journeys. 

Contact your local Stagecoach office for more information. 

What your ticket will cost

Tell us where you’re travelling from and to, and Stagecoach can tell you how much your ticket will cost.

Remember to take 50% off the full ticket price if you have a Jobcentre Plus travel card.
