Free 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 has announced that free travel will be available to those in uniform or displaying valid identification on June 24 across its services in Wales, the West of England (including Bristol, Bath, Wells and Weston-super-Mare) and Worcester.

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, back for the sixth year, will help serving and retired members of the armed forces travel on this important day.

Free travel is available anywhere in the Wales and West of England region, which includes Worcester, on Saturday, June 24 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.
Rob Pymm, Commercial Director for First West of England and Wales, 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’re a committed supporter of the communities we serve in the West of England and Wales, and are proud to help members of the armed forces travel on this special day.”
