“Stagecoach is my motivation for getting a driver license”

Written on: 20/09/2016 by Glenn393 (1 review written)

I pay over £100 each month for a monthly ticket on the X5, only for the bus to drive past me or never arrive. Unfortunately, the X5 is the only way I can get to college and it's very unreliable. One day when I had a very important exam in the winter season, I got super early to the bus stop in case my bus arrives late. The "early" bus never arrived. Neither did the next one. Or the one after that. The X5 comes every 30 minutes so I was standing out in the cold for over 2 hours before a bus… Read Full Review

“Unable to be on time”

Written on: 20/09/2016 by wyMalone5 (1 review written)

At this point I have spent over an hour waiting for a bus that (according to the timetable) rins every 25 minutes. Stagecoach has some of the most inaccurate bus times ever written. In order to get to work (which is a 45 minute walk away) I have to leave my house over 2 hours before I start. Amusingly enough, stagecoach actually say on their site if the bus is more than 5 minutes early, or 10 minutes late, the next journey is on them. If they honoured tgat every customer ever would have free… Read Full Review

“Dangerous and Scariest bus drivers - from a fellow...”

Written on: 27/08/2016 by MarcoOliver398 (1 review written)

I was trying to leave the Market place car park from Banbury town centre earlier today and two Gold S4 buses were trying to get out from a side road. Obviously I kept going as had right of way but the first bus just ignored me and pulled out dangerously in front of me. I braked harshly, shocked, and yet the second bus behind it just kept going forward, beeping its horn at me - it was a long, angry and scary sounding noise. Combined with the livid look on the driver's face, as though he would… Read Full Review

“Too expensive”

Written on: 26/08/2016 by Donna489 (1 review written)

Got the new E bus from Woodmancote into Cheltenham with the children as thought would be cheaper than driving in, more eco friendly etc.. How wrong I was. Nearly £8 for what would have been a short journey return if the bus hadn't gone all the houses. Def do not recommend as for 10 minute journey into town and@£5 parking for 3 hours it makes no sense to use the bus! Shame… Read Full Review

“Kings Lynn stagecoach always late!”

Written on: 04/07/2016 by Kaylynn259 (1 review written)

I get the number 10/CH bus from kings Lynn to Hunstanton everyday for work. I'd say 5 days out of 7, it's always at least 10 minutes late. On top of that, once it arrives, there's a huge queue waiting due to it being late and more people arriving. By the time it leaves it's anywhere between 15-20 minutes late! I am writing this from the CH that left the station at 8:15 (which is on time) but now I will be late for my meeting at work because the number 10 (8:00) did not even arrive at… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Shocking”

Written on: 15/06/2016 by noobybooby (2 reviews written)

I embarked on a stagecoach bus to travel to the local supermarket on the evening 26th May 2016. the bus itself was very late but this is usual for our local bus service. This was in the Rugby, Warwickshire area. As we approached the supermarket I pressed the bell alerting to the driver that I wanted to get off at the next stop. he then refused to make the scheduled stop, due to what he said was Traffic and refused to let me off the bus when he had come to a halt further up the road. He… Read Full Review

“Late,inconsistent, expensive”

Written on: 09/06/2016 by Brennan309 (1 review written)

Now that stagecoach have altered their timetables to these god awful lists that are impossible to read, the drivers think it's acceptable to turn up whenever they feel suit. I am in my early 20's and can read with no difficulty whatsoever and never have I seen such a complicated timetable. I have absolutely no idea when my bus is due to arrive, not that it matters as it is very rare the bus is on time. My punctuality at work is taking a serious beating because of stagecoach. I am yet to pass my… Read Full Review

“Can never stick to a time. ”

Written on: 06/06/2016 by obDavidson459 (1 review written)

X5 service. Most the time they are late. Even at 5.18am the first bus in the morning, when there is next to no traffic at this time. So it baffles me how this service at this time can be so frequently late. I understand at peak times the delay due to traffic, that I understand. Another problem is by chance they might be early to a stop, some of your drivers do not wait until the time the bus is due to depart. Many times the bus has driven away early by 3 or so minutes even when they have seen… Read Full Review

“AWFUL!!”

Written on: 29/05/2016 by VictorFreeman194 (1 review written)

Constantly cutting routes short as they're always late, leaving many passengers 3 to 5 stops away from the stop they paid to get off at! If there was any other practical way for me to get to work I would use it. Abysmal! … Read Full Review

“Better Than First Bus”

Written on: 12/04/2016 by TashReviewsStuff (1 review written)

As a person who travels on the bus at 12- 15 times a week and has to use stagecoach every time as it goes where I need, I think I'm pretty qualified to review this service. It's a great bus service. There can be untidy seats but we can expect that from any bus. The prices are reasonable and the bus drivers are almost always on time and if not they have good reason to be slightly late. One thing I must say though, is I have had a few bad experiences where my bus driver has just powered the bus… Read Full Review

“terrible service”

Written on: 11/04/2016 by KadenceHurst (1 review written)

The 505 service between kings lynn and Spalding is terrible, it rarely arrives on time at my stop. Waited for the 9.23 bus this morning and it finally turned up at 9.37 making me late for work. This is a regular occurrence on this service. Also the recent price increases are a rip off, an extra 70p on the family tickets I get (for 3 of us if that makes a difference) and 40p on the price of an adult fare. Hopefully these increases actually show and the service improves. Would not recommend this… Read Full Review

“Late for work ”

Written on: 06/04/2016 by HillaryMacLean (1 review written)

I normally get the 98 bus from Exeter road to the green most days for work. I always get the bus which gets there allowing me to have twenty minutes to walk up the massive Hill before entering sandy bay. This therefore means I don't have to rush. However today I got to the bus stop at ten past eight and I wanted for the bus. Normally I'm late so I had left earlier and waited for the 25 past 1 bus. I wasnt the only one who was waiting for the bus either. I saw the 98 drive past on the opposite… Read Full Review

“Worst Company Ever”

Written on: 18/02/2016 by bobbers10 (1 review written)

Now I am regularly forced to use this bus service, as I live in a rural area, and I cannot tell you how awful these services are. Describing the bus as running late is an under statement, these busses can literally be an hour late and still charge the same fare. If you have to be anywhere on a deadline do not rely on a bus and if you really have to get the earliest bus as they will arrive roughly the same time. The prices are out of order 4 pound for less than 7 miles. If I only ever give one… Read Full Review

“Just terrible”

Written on: 13/01/2016 by Ray1988 (1 review written)

Completely useless. I catch the x3 cwmbran to Cardiff daily and half the time it doesn't show up the other time it's ridiculously late. I had to wait an hour and 10 minutes for a service that's every half an hour. Save your time and just take the train. The only logical answer is they aim to be so useless as every other service provider is on time… Read Full Review

Stagecoach are now issuing plastic tickets to save their company money. Don't reuse them when your ticket expires destroy it and make them supply another one, it will lower their profits.

“Unhappy Staff makes Unhappy Customers”

Written on: 07/01/2016 by Nolana103 (1 review written)

Leven, Fife stagecoach buses are the following: Unclean, overpriced, they have the most inconvenient routes no matter your destination and if you start work at 9am there absolutely no buses to get you there. The staff are grumpy and unhelpful with one or two exceptions. The same buses are consistently late and nothing is done about it. Not to mention if you want to stand outside the bus shelter on a hot day you better be a smoker because every single bus driver will be puffing smoke or horrible… Read Full Review

“fast & furious but never on time”

Written on: 05/01/2016 by evO'Neal287 (1 review written)

The drivers at porth depot are like formula 1 drivers. The are constantly speeding to keep time.i was talking to 1 driver who says they are given time to get from 1 stop to another and the only way of staying on time is to actually to break the speed limit on every road. Its going to take a big accident for stagecoach porth to look in to the timing points and realise that this could cause death on the roads if you dont give your drivers more time to be able to drive carefully… Read Full Review
