A mark of respect for serving and ex-service personnel, Stagecoach West’s gesture will take coincide with tributes taking place across the UK, as millions pay tribute to the soldiers, sailors and airmen who sacrificed their lives, during events on Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.

Speaking of the gesture, Stagecoach West’s managing director Rupert Cox said: ‘As a nation we owe a huge debt of gratitude to those military personnel who fought so bravely in the past to defend our freedom and also to those who continue to do so today.

‘Many of our employees have previously served in the armed forces or have friends or relatives in the services so it is a cause very close to our hearts.

‘By offering free bus travel on this special weekend of Remembrance to serving military personnel and veterans we hope to support the excellent work being done by the Royal British Legion.’

Passengers who qualify for free travel just need to show the driver their service pass or wear their military uniform.
