As part of Stagecoach’s continuing commitment to support the Armed Forces, the company has confirmed that free travel will be available on all its bus and tram services across the UK for military and ex-military personnel on Armed Forces Day.

Armed Forces Day – on Saturday, June 24 - 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.

Free travel is being offered on June 24 and 25 to serving personnel wearing their uniform, carrying a military ID card and to veterans carrying a medal or veteran’s badge.

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

The commitment is supported by Stagecoach’s employee-led Veterans Network, Kathryn Dawson, co-lead for the network and a veteran, said: “We know that employees across the country are passionate about showing their support for our military personnel. We’re really pleased to be offering free travel to help people more easily join in with the events taking place over the weekend.

“Through our Veterans Network, we are able to build further on the work that Stagecoach has led over many years and identify how else we can support those veterans already working for us and those who may want to join the company.”
