Cardiff Bus offers free travel for serving and former HM Armed Forces on Remembrance Sunday

Servicemen and women who served their country will receive free travel on Cardiff Bus to commemorate Remembrance Sunday, November 12.

During the day passengers dressed in military uniform, or who can provide proof of serving in HM Armed Forces, will be eligible to travel without paying.

Gareth Stevens, commercial manager at Cardiff Bus, said: “Many of our customers and staff have service personnel amongst their friends and family who will be travelling to various Remembrance events this Sunday, we are proud to be able to support them on their journey.

“We wanted to show a small token of our gratitude for their years of service and play a part in remembering those who have been lost in action.”

Additionally, at the eleventh hour on Saturday, November 11, drivers will stop buses where appropriate and pause as part of the nationwide silence.

A series of diversions will also be in place on November 12, in order to ensure continued travel while Remembrance Day services are under way.

Services affected in The GEM’s area include the 92, 94, 95, 96A, and 100 running in Barry and Penarth areas.

These will experience short delays to enable people to pay their respects on Sunday. This will include a short delay at the Cenotaph in Barry at 11am and Penarth at 2pm.
