  • Stagecoach West Scotland is offering free bus travel to armed forces personnel carrying ID on Armed Forces Day
  • Free travel will support Glasgow Armed Forces Day
  • Activity supports ongoing the work of Stagecoach West Scotland to support the armed forces community

Stagecoach West 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.

With events planned in Glasgow’s George Square, details can be found here: it is hoped that personnel will take up the offer to travel across the Stagecoach West Scotland network to the event.

Tom Bridge, Managing Director, Stagecoach West Scotland said; “We are delighted to be showing support for the Armed Forces communities in the West of Scotland 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.
