Nia Griffith MP has today met residents of Hafan y Morfa who are very concerned that the service bus no longer stops outside the complex. Instead they have to walk back from the bus stop outside the shop carrying their bags, which is proving too much for some residents to cope with. During a very constructive meeting residents pointed out that if the bus company is worried about the time taken on the route, they could consider changing the route to go from town to Tesco to Morrison (rather than Morrison to Tesco) on the way back to the Morfa.
Commenting on the meeting, Nia Griffith said, “The residents made it clear to me that they DO use the service bus, and that they much prefer the flexibility of a service bus to the pre-bookable dial-a-ride service, as they cannot predict a day in advance how well they will be feeling. We also discussed asking the County Council to include Hafan y Morfa on its scheduled Bws Bach route, but residents were worried that this would reduce the frequency of the buses they could catch.”
Nia Griffith will now be taking the responses from the residents back to the County Council and the bus company.
