Chance for disability and older persons organisations to have your say about cuts to bus services

Date published: 02/02/2018

Bridgend County Borough Council is conducting an Impact Assessment Survey about the plans to cut or takelogo away a number of bus services around Bridgend County Borough.

Simon Green, Chair of Bridgend Coalition of Disabled People says: "At our next Bridgend Coalition of Disabled People meeting on Tuesday 13 February at St John's Ambulance Centre (formerly Minerva Street Centre, opposite Penybont Primary School), members of Bridgend Council will be in attendance along with representatives from First Cymru Buses to hear your views and answer your questions and queries. 

"Please come along and have your say. You don't have to be a member of our group to attend our meeting, please encourage friends and colleagues from other disability and older persons organisations you may know to come along too.

"Our meetings normally begin at 1pm but can I ask you to please arrive at 12.30pm this time in order to be settled and ready for when our friends from BCBC and First Cymru arrive at 1pm as we want as much time as possible with them before they leave around 2pm.

"On the same subject, if anyone lives in the Cefn Glas, Bryntirion or Llangewydd Court area and rely on the 68 and 69 services, there is a separate meeting about the possible cuts to these bus routes this Saturday 3 February from midday at Westward Community Centre.  The centre is fully wheelchair accessible."
