MiWay Salutes Canadian Forces Veterans with Free Remembrance Day Ride

Oct 28, 2013

To honour Canadian Forces veterans, MiWay is once again offering a free ride for veterans and their companion who ride on Remembrance Day, Monday, November 11.

“We honour the brave men and women who served our country during war by offering a free ride as our way of saying thank you,” said Geoff Marinoff, director of transit. “Each veteran is respectfully asked to identify a companion to transit operators so that he or she may also ride free.”

To receive the complimentary ride, Marinoff added, veterans must wear their uniforms, medals or other items clearly identifying themselves as veterans to transit operators.

All MiWay buses will observe a minute of silence at 11 a.m. on November 11 to recognize Canadian veterans. Transit operators will stop their buses during this tribute.

Let MiWay take you to the Remembrance Day Ceremony at Mississauga Civic Centre at the Community Memorial located at the northwest corner of Mississauga Celebration Square. The ceremony is on November 11 at 10:45 a.m. This year marks the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War.
