As the region celebrates Armed Forces Day, on Saturday 29 June, it’s an opportunity for us to give thanks to those who risk their lives for our country, both then and now.

This year also marks the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings.

As a small token of our respect and gratitude we will be offering free travel on Saturday 29 June to:

  • Veterans wearing medals or a veteran badge
  • Armed Forces personnel in uniform or with a Military ID

Supertram also offered free travel to the same groups for Sheffield Armed Forces Day on Saturday 22 June. With free tickets and travel handed out throughout the day to support the city’s event.

Nigel Wragg, Commercial Manager at South Yorkshire Supertram, said:

“Armed Forces Day is an important day of reflection across the country, honouring all those who served our country with bravery, and those who still do.

“We are proud to support both the Sheffield and national Armed Forces Day and offer free Supertram travel to serving military personnel and veterans alike across the network.

“With this small gesture we hope to demonstrate our gratitude by making it as easy as possible for people to attend local events.”

Serving armed forces personnel and veterans just have to show their relevant, badge, uniform or ID to a conductor onboard a tram to secure free travel.
