• Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire is offering free bus travel to Armed Forces personnel carrying ID on Armed Forces Day.

• Free travel will support celebrations of Armed Forces Day across Cumbria and North Lancashire.

• Activity supports on-going the work of Stagecoach to support the armed forces community

To commemorate and support this year’s ‘Armed Forces Day’ celebrations, Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire announce that serving members of the armed forces, veterans and cadets can travel on bus services across Cumbria and North Lancashire for free on Saturday 24th June.

Armed Forces Day is an annual event, celebrated to commemorate the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces. Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire are therefore introducing free travel for serving and retired members of the armed forces on 24th June to ensure they can get to the special events taking place across the county.

Free travel is available only to members of the armed forces who are in uniform or who show a valid identification card. 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. 

Matthew Cranwell, Managing Director of Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire, said: “We are delighted to once again be supporting our Armed Forces communities across Cumbria. By providing free travel to military personnel and veterans we hope to be able to give a well-deserved morale boost for our local troops.”
