STAGECOACH will be offering free travel for military and ex-military personnel on Friday and Sunday.

The bus operator has also extended the offer to include cadets wearing uniform.

Simon Tramalloni, co-lead for the Stagecoach Veterans Network, said: “After the idea came about last year, I am so proud that we are now able to offer this to military cadets and celebrate a second year of offering free travel to military and ex-military personnel.

“Stagecoach has a strong commitment to supporting the armed forces and our veterans, and we have thousands of ex-forces personnel working across our business.

“Remembrance Day and the Poppy Appeal are causes close to the hearts of many of our employees and customers and we are very pleased to be making this commitment that will hopefully help people to attend memorials across the UK.”
