Showing our support this November for Remembrance

3 months ago Thu 9th Nov 2023

Free Travel

Warrington’s Own Buses recognises the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our organisation.

We seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, and continue to support Remembrance Day/Sunday activities as in previous years, by offering free travel to:

  • Members of the Regular and Reserve Services carrying their MOD90 card
  • Veterans who carry their Veterans’ badge
  • Cadets travelling in uniform

Free travel should be allowed to a person satisfying one of the three criteria above on Remembrance Day (Saturday 11th November 2023) and Remembrance Sunday (Sunday 12th November 2023).

Observing 2 minutes’ silence

Our drivers may pull over if it is safe and legal for them to do so at 11am on Saturday 11 November for Armistice Day and at 11am Sunday 12 November for Remembrance Sunday as a mark of respect to observe the two minutes’ silence.

Ben Wakerley, Managing Director of Warrington’s Own Buses, said: “We are sending a clear and proud message to armed forces communities across the country that we appreciate them and are grateful for everything they do.”
