The bus service in Brecon is failing residents and Matthew has taken the matter up with the Council and Stagecoach.
A new timetable, a shortage of drivers and some changes to stops are causing significant problems for bus users which has forced residents to stump up for taxis or struggle home with bags of shopping and prams.
Matthew says: “Residents in St John Ward deserve a local bus service that’s reliable and fit for purpose – it’s what I am demanding from the Council and I know they are working hard to sort the problem out.
“Stagecoach are getting paid a lot of money to deliver this service and I’ve asked them to take urgent action and work with the Council to fix the problem.”
Matthew is urging residents to report problems with the bus service to the Council by emailing: Buses@powys.gov.uk or calling 01597 826 000. Alternatively, residents can contact Matthew and he will raise the concerns with the Council.
