Between the hours of 10:00am and 12:00pm members of the armed forces will be able to travel on a First South Yorkshire service for free, enabling them to easily travel to local Remembrance Day events.
Members of the armed forces who are in uniform, or able to show an identification card, will be able to claim free travel. The offer is also open to members of the cadet forces in uniform and veterans who display valid identification, such as the MOD issued Veteran’s Badge.
Kevin Belfield, Managing Director of First South Yorkshire, comments: “Remembrance Day is an incredibly important occasion for many people to show their support, or remember family members, friends and others who have been lost in military service. There will be many events and services taking place locally where people, communities and organisations around the area can visit to show their respect. As a supporter of our communities, we want to make it as easy as possible for people to attend local events on this important day.”
In addition to the free travel being offered, most First South Yorkshire vehicles will be displaying poppies on the front of the vehicle.
