Arriva to offer free travel to the Armed Forces, Veterans and Cadets on Remembrance Sunday 

12/11/2021

Arriva is offering free bus travel to past and present members of the Armed Forces on its services throughout the regions on Sunday 14 November.

As a mark of respect on Remembrance Sunday, serving personnel (both regular and reservists), veterans and cadets will be allowed free travel onto Arriva services all day. When you board simply show the driver your Armed Forces identification card, Armed Forces Veteran identification card or MOD issued Veteran’s Badge.

Richard Hoare, Commercial Director at Arriva, said:

“We are proud to offer the Armed Forces, Veterans and Cadets free travel on our services on Remembrance Sunday.

“As a business, we are proud to support the Royal British Legion, and our drivers may also pull over to partake in a two-minute silence at 11am on Sunday 14th November, providing it is safe and legal to do so.”

Around 1,200 military personnel, veterans and families of the fallen from recent conflicts, plus civic dignitaries from across the Liverpool City Region will gather inside Liverpool Cathedral for the service and big screens will be set up in the cathedral grounds so members of the public can gather and be part of the commemorations.

The service will start at 10.40am with a two-minute silence taking place at 11am, followed by a poignant poppy drop outside the venue. During the service, there will be readings, prayers and music contributions by The Band of the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.
