Free travel if you wear a poppy on 11th November with First Bristol, Bath and the West

Poppy wearers, as well as serving Armed Forces personnel, Cadets and veterans travel free on Remembrance Sunday on West of England services
Bus company’s offer aims to encourage people to attend commemorative events to mark 100 years since Armistice Day
Bus operator First West of England is offering free travel across its entire network on 11 November 2018 to people who wear a poppy so they can attend commemorative events. The local bus operator decided upon the generous offer to mark that it is 100 years since the Armistice was signed on 11th November 1918, bringing about the cessation of hostilities in the First World War.

To claim the free bus travel, all people need to do is wear a poppy when they board. As in previous years, serving Armed Forces personnel, veterans as well as Cadets in uniform, veterans wearing military medals or people with a relevant military ID card also travel for free. As a part of the bus operator’s support for Remembrance Sunday, many buses will have poppies fitted on the exterior of the vehicle.
