NCT’s Armed Forces Day bus
Nottingham City Transport (NCT) has unveiled its Armed Forces Day bus. The double decker features a patriotic design to celebrate the national event, which is being held in Nottingham for the first time on 29 June. It will include a parade through the city centre and celebrations on Victoria Embankment. During the day, the operator will be running a frequent shuttle service between the city centre and Trent Bridge, as well as offering free travel to all service personnel across the network. The bus will be running on routes across Nottingham throughout this month.
Marketing Manager at NCT, Anthony Carver Smith, said, ‘Armed Forces Day is an important event and we wanted to celebrate the fact it’s coming to Nottingham and show our support and gratitude to all servicemen and women who do such an essential job for the country. The bus is a very visual way of doing this and will remind people on a daily basis that the event is happening in the city and hopefully encourage them to support it by coming along on the day. NCT has many employees who have previously served in the armed forces or have family who do, we also have a number of staff who serve in the Territorial Army or are reservists so the bus is also a show of support and thanks to them and we can’t wait to get it out on the road!’
