Canadian Forces veterans and their companion can ride MiWay for free on Sunday, November 11
in recognition of Remembrance Day.
"Veterans' Week reminds us of the personal sacrifices our veterans have made for Canada
and this is 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.
