The company are also offering free travel on all services in East Scotland on remembrance Sunday (November 10) for armed force personnel who have a valid pass or are in uniform.

Douglas Robertson, Managing Director, Stagecoach East Scotland, said: “We are delighted to once again show our appreciation to those who sacrificed so much. This time of year is always a poignant one and it is important that we continue to remember the thousands of men and women who fought for our country. We are proud of how many armed force reservists work for Stagecoach and will continue to support them through our pledges with the armed force covenant”.
