Stagecoach has launched a new Flexi Day 5 ticket aimed at customers who are now working more flexible hours, part-time or shifts, and leisure commuters beginning to get out and about as shops, cafés and restaurants open back up. The ticket gives five days of travel in any 30-day period for the price of four single tickets, giving customers across the region a 20% discount as Greater Manchester returns to work.

Elisabeth Tasker, Stagecoach Manchester Managing Director, said: “We’ve been listening to our customers closely and, it is clear, that as we move out of the pandemic there is a need for increased flexibility for both commuters and leisure customers.

“As a result, we have introduced the Flexi Day 5 ticket to give local people the transport option they need and to ensure they can travel around the region in confidence as we look to return to normality.”

The Flexi Day 5 ticket can be purchased via the Stagecoach Bus App using PayPal, Apple Pay or Google Pay, and once activated, customers have one month to use all five tickets.
