    Does anyone know an email address I can use to try and ask if a passport has been handed in, because I possibly may have lost mine on the Magic Bus yesterday.. apparently I also need a passport to apply for a Provisional Driving Licence which I can't really do now, though I should've done it before I came to uni :p: And why doesn't our university ID cards not have our date of births on anyway??

    kinda off topic but...

    got on a 142 magic bus yesterday, only had a tenner so i asked if the driver had change for it. he was an asian guy with a strong accent so i couldn't really tell what he was sayin but he gave me a pound n pointed up the road. very confused, it turned out he wanted me to get off the bus in the middle of the road n go n get him a bottle of coke cos he was thirsty! i did it cos i was in a good mood, but the coke cost £1.10 so i had to use my own 10p to get it for him. jumped back on the bus as it held up the traffic n he let me on for free (well it cost me 10p lol).

    just thought i'd publicise it, thought it was funny/weird lol

    You should have told him where to go! How cheeky.

    With regards to the question, you should ring 0161 273 3377.

    Magic buses are run by Stagecoach. I dont have an email, but try looking on their website.

    one of my mates said he sometimes gives the drivers £20 notes as payment for single tickets...apparently often they can't be arsed to give out that much change and will let you on for free!

    AFAIK you don't need a passport to apply for a provisional license it is just handy because they use your passport number to corroborate the details you put on the form, otherwise you have to provide a copy of your driving license. Also regarding lost property, I think they keep it at one of the bus stations, however i would imagine they would be obliged to report a passport if they found it, they can't really claim they don't know who it belongs to.

    Yeah I noticed that they do that fairly frequently, It's a love hate relationship with Magic Bus......They have so much character it's worth going to Uni in Manc just so you can use them.

    If you lost something it's worth a check, but there's a 90% chance it's gone forever, sorry.....
