Saints team up with Stagecoach

The 2018/19 campaign is well underway and for a second successive season the club has teamed up with Stagecoach to provide our Season Ticket holders with discounted bus travel on matchdays!

Any Saints fan with a Season Ticket can travel to and from home matches for 50% off when they buy a Match Dayrider.

You simply need to show your Season Ticket to the driver of the first Stagecoach bus you board on a matchday to receive your 50% discount! The existing dayrider tickets available to travel to McDiarmid Park are Perth Zone 1, Perth Zone 2, Perth Zone 3, Tayside and the East Scotland Zone.

To assist in the relaunch of the Match Dayrider ticket, Stagecoach has rebranded one of the local buses on its popular service 1 & 2 with an image of our very own Tony Watt.

One of our seven new recruits for this summer, Tony has made a flying start to life at McDiarmid Park and was recently named the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership Player of the Month for August, and has netted six times this season so far.

David Frenz, Operations Director for Stagecoach East Scotland, commented: "The offer was so successful last year, we were keen to continue it for the 2018/19 season and assist with easing traffic congestion around McDiarmid Park during home games.

"It's great to work with St Johnstone Football Club for another season and as a continued supporter myself, I wish the team every success!"

Beverley Mayer, the club's Supporter Liason Officer, added: "The Stagecoach Matchday Rider is a fantastic offer which provides great value for our season ticket holders when it comes to getting to and from home matches.

"The response last season was superb and we're excited about partnering up with Stagecoach once again for the 2018/19 campaign.

"The new imagery on the back of the bus looks great and I'm sure the supporters are loving seeing Tony Watt throughout the town on a daily basis. It's been a great start to the season and everybody at the club is excited about what's in store for the campaign ahead."

Full details on the range of zone tickets available for travel in and around Perth is available at stagecoachbus.com. Supporters can also use stagecoachbus.com or the Stagecoach Bus app to plan a journey, view live bus times and see service updates for their journey.

The Match Dayrider is not available to buy on the website or app and should be bought from the driver. An exact fare is not required and Stagecoach drivers are able to give change.
