Anzac Day bus offer

CENTRAL Highlands war veterans and widows will have the opportunity to travel to Anzac Day commemorations for free on April 24, 25 and 26 thanks to Greyhound Australia.

Chief operating officer Tony Hopkins said this was the fourth year the national coach company had offered the free service across its entire network so the country’s war heroes and widows could attend Anzac Day commemoration ceremonies, share memories and catch up throughout Australia.

“Greyhound is proud to be able to offer a free ride to the people who have served in the defence of peace and liberty for all Australians and the brave women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country when their husbands went to war,” Mr Hopkins said.

“This offer is open to all Australian veterans no matter when and where they served.

“It also doesn’t matter where they live, be it Katherine or Melbourne.

“If they want to go to one of the 1100 destinations Greyhound services daily to attend a specific Anzac Day parade and reconnect with old friends, we will get them there for free.”

War veterans and widows can secure their free travel by booking via Greyhound’s national call centre on 1300 GREYHOUND (1300 473 946) and introducing themselves as a veteran or a veteran’s widow.
