Free bus travel to mark Armed Forces Day

Serving members of the armed forces, veterans and cadets are being offered free bus travel this Saturday to show support for Armed Forces Day.

First Bus South has announced that free travel will be available to those in uniform or displaying valid identification on Saturday 29th June across its services in Dorset, Hampshire, Berkshire and Somerset.

Armed Forces Day is a national, annual event to show support for the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces. The local bus operator’s offer will help serving and retired members of the armed forces travel on this important day.

Free travel is available for:

  • Members of the armed forces in uniform;
  • Members of the armed forces who present a valid identification card;
  • Members of the cadet forces in uniform; and
  • Veterans who display valid identification such as the MOD-issued Veteran’s Badge.

James Eustace, Commercial Director for First Bus South, said: “Armed Forces Day is an important occasion for so many people across the UK, recognising the incredible service that military personnel provide, and most importantly, remembering those who have been lost in service.

“We have many 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 our freedoms.”
