Jane Talks About Buses

A meeting took place last week in Barry between Margaret Everson of the Bus Users Council  and Jane Hutt AM to update on bus user needs and issues in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Jane invited Rhoose resident Mr Malcolm Mills to the meeting,  to raise his  concerns about buses serving the Rhoose community – this is the subject of a petition due to be presented to the Vale of Glamorgan Council. 

Mr Mills expressed his concern that the first bus to leave Rhoose is not until 8.20am –  which is very late for commuters and people seeking connections for other bus and train services.

Jane said she had been engaging with New Adventure Travel and the Vale Council to find a way of securing a service to the people of the Fonmon Road neighbourhood,  who lost their bus service several years ago. She has called for the 303 service to be provided on a regular basis up Fonmon Road to connect with the Blue Anchor at Aberthaw.

She also said that she has a meeting arranged with Cardiff Bus to discuss the x91.

 Margaret Everson highlighted the Catch a Bus Week in July with Bus Users Cymru holding an event in King Square, Barry on Tuesday 5th July involving NAT, Cardiff  Bus and Watts Buses and urged everyone to attend.
