Free travel for military personnel on Armed Forces Day

Free travel will be available on Stagecoach bus and tram services for military and ex-military personnel on Armed Forces Day.

This Saturday is a chance for the public to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to service families, veterans and cadets.

Stagecoach bus companies across the UK are offering free travel this Saturday and Sunday, to serving personnel wearing their uniform, carrying a military ID card and to veterans carrying a medal or veteran’s badge.

The offer excludes Megabus, TFL and the Bee network.

Stagecoach also offers free bus travel every year for veterans and military personnel on Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday.

The commitment to free travel for the Armed Forces is supported by Stagecoach’s employee led Veterans Network. The network was launched to allow Stagecoach colleagues to come together as one voice to make change, raise awareness, help influence business decisions and introduce new ways of working to make the company even stronger.

Stagecoach has also been a member of the Armed Force Covenant since March 2015, recognising the value of serving personnel, regular and reservists, veterans and military families to both the country and businesses across the country.

Simon Tramalloni, interim operations director for Stagecoach Merseyside, Cheshire & South Lancashire and Armed Forces & Veterans co-lead said: “We are extremely proud and honoured to confirm free travel for all serving personnel, veterans and cadets on June  29 and June throughout the UK.

“This is our ongoing commitment to the wider armed forces community and a privilege to honour those serving personnel, veterans, cadets and their families this is the least we could do to honour those that serve and represent the armed forces community”.
