A council on-line survey of public transport in the Vale of Glamorgan has found that most bus users are only “fairly satisfied” with local buses and want more frequent services than are currently provided.
Most of those responding to the survey had a “concessionary pass” which entitles them to use the services at no cost to themselves .
Respondents said they were “fairly satisfied with public transport overall” – but wanted more frequent services
A number of respondents said they were “happy to use public transport during the day” b ut were “less likely” to use buses after dark. Respondents also used trains for shopping and leisure travel
The Vale of Glamorgan Council has carried out a view of all the bus services that it subsidises and says that members of the public suggested a number of “tweaks” that could be made to timetables to provide improved services .
The council says it is not possible to increase the frequency on these subsidised services.
