Our Companies

Our bus and coach services connect communities up and down the UK, from big cities to smaller towns.

UK Bus

Our UK Bus division connects communities across the country on a network stretching from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland to South West England. It includes major city bus operations in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Hull, Sheffield, Oxford and Cambridge.

We also run the market-leading budget inter-city coach service, megabus.com, and Europe’s most frequent express coach service, Oxford Tube, running in and out of London.

Most Stagecoach buses and coach services are operated on a commercial basis in a largely deregulated market. We also operate tendered services, including schools contracts, on behalf of local authorities.

Each regional operating company is managed independently and is led by a Managing Director, reporting directly to the Managing Director of the UK Bus division, Robert Montgomery. We are a major employer, providing jobs for around 24,000 people.

Putting customers first is our priority and our services help people in rural and urban areas access work, education, health, shopping and leisure opportunities. We continue to invest in greener, more accessible buses and coaches, comprehensive training for our people and better information for passengers.

We are working hard to increase the quality, reliability and frequency of bus services to offer car users a realistic transport alternative and help cut congestion. Bus priority measures are crucial to achieve this objective and our local management teams work in close partnership with local authorities to improve local services.
