Free travel on First Cymru buses to honour Remembrance Sunday
Armed Forces personnel, Cadets and Veterans travel for free on Remembrance Sunday, 11 November
To commemorate Remembrance Sunday, First Cymru is providing free journeys across their entire network to any Cadets, Armed Forces personnel and veterans travelling to Remembrance services on 11 November.
The local bus operator announced the concession in honour of all the fallen and the surviving veterans of conflict. To claim the free bus travel, all Cadets, Armed Forces personnel and veterans need to do is wear their uniform, medals or show a relevant military ID card.
Andrew Sherrington, First Cymru’s Managing Director, said:
“Remembrance Day is an important day 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 or just want to pay their respects. We are pleased to be supporting the occasion and want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend the events taking place across our network.
He added: “Many of our employees, from drivers, engineers to office staff have served in the military, so this time of year is particularly poignant across our sites.”
A spokesman for the Royal British Legion said:
“We are incredibly grateful to First Cymru for their support of this year’s Poppy Appeal. On this centenary year we are saying Thank You to the entire generation who served in the First World War, and all generations of the Armed Forces community who have served since.
The work of the Legion is as relevant and vital today as it was in the aftermath of the First World War when the charity was founded. Please wear your poppy with pride knowing your donation is supporting today’s Armed Forces community. “
