Bus passengers across Caerphilly County Borough will get the chance to have their say about their local services on Friday at a bus users’ surgery.
Organised by Caerphilly County Borough Council and passenger watchdog Bus Users UK, the surgery is being held at the new park and ride car park at Newbridge train station on October 2 at 2pm.
Bus users will be able to speak face to face with bosses from transport firm Stagecoach at the event.
Barclay Davies, of Bus Users UK, said: “The Bus User Surgery is a really good opportunity for bus users to talk directly with the bus operators in their area and it will hopefully be the start of long term grass roots consultation with the aim of improving bus services.
“At the surgery, details of all points raised are taken and replies sent by the operators or local authorities to those people attending. It is often difficult for bus users to understand the actions of commercial bus operators and difficult for bus operators to fully understand the needs of users. People often don’t know who is responsible for providing bus services in their area or who they should contact when things go wrong. I hope that as many people as possible will come along and talk to us.”
