Stagecoach in Chesterfield is the sector of the Stagecoach Group that operates buses in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England.

They currently carry over eight million passengers per year, experiencing a year on year passenger increase of around 10% in recent years. Operating 119 buses and employing up to 320 employees within Chesterfield, Stagecoach is one of the largest bus operators in the UK.[1]

As well as within Chesterfield and its boroughs, the company also run certain buses to Bolsover, Clay Cross, Alfreton, Matlock, Dronfield, Sheffield, and Eckington. They also operate a Pronto service between Chesterfield, Mansfield and Nottingham in partnership with Stagecoach in Mansfield and Trent Barton.

To assist the elderly and disabled, many routes have low-floor buses.

On 3 May 2005 Stagecoach opened a new coach station in Chesterfield (on the site of the old one) for their express routes, and also for National Express services.

Although most routes operate all week, some do not operate on Sundays, and some only operate on Sundays. On bank holidays, a Sunday service is in operation.
