Public Transport under threat

by franklittle on 15 February, 2012

At short notice, the Welsh Government is slashing its support for bus operators – the story and reaction to it by a large operator are here: http://waleshome.org/2012/02/the-minister-is-on-the-wrong-bus/ At the annual community plan seminar sponsored by the Local Service Board in Port Talbot yesterday, the Chief Executive expressed his fears for the future of subsidised bus […]

Buses

by franklittle on 21 July, 2010

I had a very nice card yesterday from residents, thanking me for having the early evening service from Neath to Cadoxton restored.

Cadoxton Terrace – missing bus stop sign

by franklittle on 11 September, 2008

There is a bus stop in Cadoxton Terrace for north-bound (down) services roughly opposite Drumfields. Unfortunately, though there is a stop sign on the up side of the road, there is not one on the down side. This causes inexperienced bus drivers to miss the stop and take passengers on to the next stop by […]
