Free travel is available on Stagecoach services today and on Sunday across South Yorkshire for Veterans and Military personnel to get to remembrance services.

The offer by the bus and tram company has also been extended to 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. 

“The Veterans Network is allowing us to build on the work that Stagecoach has led over many years to identify how else we can support those veterans already working for us and those that may want to come and join the company. 

“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.” 

Stagecoach has been a member of the Armed Force Covenant since March 2015 and set up its own Veterans Network within the company last year.

Employees across Stagecoach will also respect the two minutes silence and where safe to do so, drivers may pull over to honour this.  

A Ceremony to mark Remembrance Sunday will be taking place at the at the Cenotaph in Barker’s Pool, with proceedings starting at 10:30 am.

Alternatively, there will be a special remembrance service in Sheffield Cathedral starting at the same time.
