23 Jun 2016

  •  Stagecoach North Scotland is offering free bus travel to armed forces personnel carrying ID on Armed Forces Day
  •  Free travel will support armed forces personnel getting to the parade in Aberdeen on Saturday 25th June and events around Inverness between Friday 24th June until Sunday 26th June.

Stagecoach North Scotland is helping to support Armed Forces Day 2016. 

On Saturday 25 June the company will be offering free travel to armed forces personnel carrying a military ID card and to veterans carrying a veteran’s badge.

Armed Forces Day is a chance for the public to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. 

It  is hoped that personnel will take up the offer to travel to Aberdeen on Saturday 25th June to be part of the Aberdeen Armed Forces Day Parade. The parade will start at 1100, marching from Alford Place (AB10 1YD), down Union Street, finishing at Castlegate.

Armed forces personnel can also travel to any of the Blue Flash Challenge in Inverness by bus for free when they show the driver their military ID from Friday 24th June until Sunday 26th June. 

Steve Walker, Managing Director for Stagecoach North Scotland said; “We are delighted to be showing support for the Armed Forces communities in Aberdeen in this way. By providing free travel to military personnel we hope to be able to give a well deserved morale boost for our local troops.”

Last year, Stagecoach Group signed the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Corporate Covenant in support of the Armed Forces Community. As a signatory of the Covenant, the company recognises the value serving personnel; regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to both the country and businesses across the country.
