THE CITY’S buses are offering free travel for veterans and serving members of the Armed Forces this Remembrance Sunday.

The buses are offering free travel across Brighton and Hove, Kent, Surrey and Sussex to anyone wearing their own military service medals or carrying their military ID card.

One hundred Brighton and Hove buses will each have a giant poppy on the front to support the Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal and to celebrate the bravery of those who fought in the First World War.

Brighton and Hove Buses’ Managing Director Martin Harris said it was important to make travel as easy as possible for people who are wanting to celebrate and attend Remembrance Day services, parades and wreath laying on Sunday. He said: “It’s a particularly poignant day, marking the 100th anniversary since the end of the First World War, and a time for communities to come together and acknowledge the debt the nation owes the Armed Forces, while looking toward the future together with hope”.

There will be a bus at the Brighton parade and remembrance service at the War Memorial, Old Steine Gardens.
