Stagecoach West Scotland is offering free bus travel to Armed Forces personnel, past and present, this Remembrance Sunday.

Showing their support for the 2018 Poppy Appeal and the British Legion Thank you campaign, the transport provider has contributed to these organisations and is encouraging any drivers who choose to wear a poppy to do so.

Armed Forces personnel carrying a military ID card and veterans wearing a veteran’s badge will be allowed to travel free of charge throughout West Scotland, including Arran, in the hope that they will pay their respects at one of the many services being held across the country.

Sam Greer, Stagecoach West Scotland managing director said: ‘Once again, we are proud to be supporting Remembrance Sunday in this way. This year, 100 years after World War One ended, we are supporting our armed forces to say Thank you to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

‘Through our support we hope we can send a clear message to our Armed Forces communities in West Scotland that we appreciate and recognise the commitment they have made to our country over the years.’

The company supports the Armed Forces throughout the year too, offering personnel with a forces ID a reduced rate on journeys with their £1 Armed Forces single tickets
