Stagecoach Flexi 5 Launched in Manchester

Stagecoach has launched a new ‘Flexi Day 5‘ ticket in Greater Manchester. The ‘five for the price of four’ deal is aimed at people who are now working more flexible hours, part-time or shifts, and leisure commuters beginning to get out and about as shops, cafes and restaurants open back up.

Flexi 5 is a bundle of five Manchester dayrider tickets which must be used over a month. Normally these £5 tickets would cost a total of £25 for five, but with Flexi Day 5 customers pay £20 – a 20% discount.

 “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,” Stagecoach Manchester managing director Elisabeth Tasker.

“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 be downloaded straight to a smartphone. Once the ticket is activated, customers have one month to use all five tickets.



According to the Stagecoach website, "The tickets are easy to buy and use, buy once and activate tickets when you need to use them – just follow these 5 simple steps:

Find the Flexi Day 5 ticket in the Multi-trip section on the App.
Add the Flexi Day 5 ticket to the basket, then checkout securely.
You now have five Manchester dayrider tickets in the My Tickets section of your App ready for use.
Activate a ticket when you need to use it
After using one ticket, it should show 4/5 tickets remaining – you've got one month from the day of purchase to use all 5 tickets."
