To commemorate and support ‘Armed Forces Day’, First Bus in South Yorkshire, Leicester and the Potteries is providing ‘FREE BUS TRAVEL’ on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June to any person travelling to an organised event wearing uniforms of the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Marines, Royal Air Force and any associated cadet force.

 

Additionally, free travel is also allowed if a person is in possession of a current Ministry of Defence issued card, with their branch of military stated. First Bus staff who have previously served in the forces are also being encouraged to wear associated military attire whilst driving in service.

 

Armed Forces Day is a chance to show support for those who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to service families, veterans, and cadets. There are many events and services taking place around the country and locally where people, communities and organisations can visit to show their support.

 

Ian Smith, Commercial Director at First Bus in South Yorkshire and the Midlands said,

 

” This is an important occasion for many people who want to remember family, friends and others who have been lost in military service.

 

“ We have several veterans working for First Bus across our businesses and we’re very proud of their efforts and sacrifice.

 

“This is our way of saying thank you to them, as well as honouring all men and women who choose to serve and protect the freedoms our country”.
