Cornwall - Nov. 10, 2011 - With Remembrance Day just around the corner, Cornwall Transit is reminding veterans that they can ride the bus free of charge at any time of the year.

The City of Cornwall enacted a new policy in 2011 that allows veterans to ride for free on the Conventional Bus and Handi-Transit bus service throughout the year upon presentation of their veteran's card from a local service club.

In previous years, Cornwall Transit offered free rides for veterans on Remembrance Day, and the decision was made to expand the service to the full year.

"It is a small gesture of appreciation for all those who have served, and who continue to serve, our country," said Mayor Bob Kilger.

Transit Division Manager Len Tapp is encouraging all local veterans to take advantage of this free service, both on Remembrance Day and throughout the year.

"We would be honoured to have them on board," said Mr. Tapp.

Cornwall Transit operates 6 conventional bus routes, 2 Community Service routes and 36 daily hours of Handi-Transit service, along with morning and evening service to the Cornwall Business Park. There are more than 240 Cornwall Transit bus stops located throughout the City, allowing citizens to travel to most locations around Cornwall within 30 minutes.
