The Veteran's Day holiday was established in 1919 to honor everyone who served in any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces;  Designed to coincide with Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, its origins celebrate the end of World War I.

This year, a locally-based company wants to honor those veterans with free travel.

Jefferson Lines will offer free travel for Veterans on Tuesday, November 11, 2014.

“Veterans have provided a great service for our country and Jefferson Lines wants to thank them for their dedication and commitment. We strive to be connected to our communities and this is one way in which we can achieve that vision,” says Kevin Pursey, Director of Marketing.


To qualify for free travel, Veterans must attain tickets in person at a Jefferson Lines company location by showing their DD 214 Form and an ID, such as a driver’s license. No phone orders will be accepted. Veterans can attain these free tickets anytime from October 20, 2014 up to and including November 11, 2014. Free tickets must be for travel departing on November 11th for both one-way and roundtrip tickets. Veterans are welcome to return on a different date for roundtrip tickets.
