Serving Armed Forces personnel, cadets and veterans travel free on Remembrance Sunday on all West of England bus services
Bus operator First West of England is offering free travel across its entire network including Park & Ride, metrobus and Airport Flyer services A1 and A3 on Sunday 10 November 2019 to serving Armed Forces personnel, cadets and veterans so they can attend commemorative events.
To claim free travel, all current and former military personnel need to do is wear their uniform or medals, or show their military ID card.
James Freeman, Managing Director for First West of England, said:
“Remembrance Day is an important occasion for many people who want to remember family, friends and others who have been lost in all wars, both service men and women and civilians. With this offer we want to make it as easy as possible for current and former serving forces to attend special events taking place in our region. Many of our employees, from drivers, engineers to office staff have served in the military or have friends and family members who are former or active members of the Armed Forces, so this time of year is particularly poignant across our sites.”
