Stagecoach West is offering NHS staff working at Gloucestershire Hospital Foundation Trust 25 per cent off all bus travel.

The 25 per cent discount can be used on tickets covering travel in ‘Cheltenham’, ‘Gloucester’, ‘Cheltenham and Gloucester Plus’ and ‘West Gold’ which includes Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Cirencester, Swindon and Oxford and the offer can be used with the following ticket types:
