ARRIVA is offering free bus travel to past and present members of the military on its buses on Sunday, November 12, 2023.
Service personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and cadets will be able to take advantage of free travel on Arriva services all day.When boarding the bus, they will need to show the driver Armed Forces identification card, Veteran identification card or Ministry of Defence-issued Veteran’s Badge.
As a business, Arriva has a close relationship with the service-people’s charity the Royal British Legion and many of our bus drivers used to work in the military.
Cora Woodhouse, marketing and customer services director for Arriva, said: “We’re proud to offer free travel to all those who have served the country on our networks on Remembrance Sunday.
“We’re always keen to support this national event as it’s important to pay tribute to all those who’ve contributed to serving in the forces both in the past and right now. In fact, many of our employees used to be in the military and we know how important it is to them.
“Our drivers may also pull over to take part in a two-minute silence at 11am on both Armistice Day, November 11, and the day after on Remembrance Sunday, provided it’s safe and legal to do so.”
