Newport Transport supports celebration of Remembrance

Newport Transport - Tuesday, November 05, 2019

NEWPORT BUS

 

To mark Remembrance Sunday and to thank those who have served or still serve in the military, Newport Transport offers free travel on Sunday to customers in military uniform or those who show an ID badge as proof of current or previous service in any branch of our armed forces.

Scott Pearson, Managing Director of Newport Transport comments: “We are delighted to once again offer free travel to all armed forces personnel, veterans and cadets all day on Remembrance Sunday as a way of thanks for all that they have done or currently do for this country. The company has a great history enshrined right back to the first world war. Those brave employees are remembered on our plaque of remembrance in our head office reception.”

REMEMBRANCE PLAQUE

Newport Transport hopes this free transport will allow those who served to remember the fallen and those they fought alongside at localised events or at the Remembrance Parade taking place in Newport City Centre.

A Bronze Award holder of the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), Newport Transport pledged to be a forces friendly employer. Members of staff who have previously served will also be taking place in the parade and will lay a wreath at Newport Cenotaph on behalf of Newport Transport.

Will that include those that only have a Defense Discount Card etc as most veterans wont have an ID card??
Response: Yes, this includes any document that proves that you are military or ex military. Kind Regards.
