Free travel for armed forces, veterans and volunteers

8th November 2018

Free travel for armed forces, veterans and volunteers across Northern network for Remembrance weekend On Saturday 10 November and Sunday 11 November, we will be offering complimentary travel across our entire network to service personnel wearing an armed forces uniform or carrying a military ID card.

The offer is also open to members of the cadet forces in uniform and veterans who display valid identification, such as the MOD issued Veteran's Badge. The hundreds of licenced poppy sellers, who have been volunteering in the lead up to this weekend will also be able to take advantage of free travel. There are a number of colleagues, including myself, that have served in the Armed Forces and we want to acknowledge the contribution and sacrifices people have made by making it as easy as possible for people to attend events on this important weekend. There are a number of Remembrance Day events that Northern are supporting across our network and I will be laying a wreath on behalf of Northern at the York Railway Remembrance service. Mike Paterson Regional Director, North East
