An on-line petition has been initiated calling for public bus services to operate from Cardiff Central Station to Penarth during the late-night and early morning – after the last Cardiff/Penarth train.
The petition has been set up by two Plaid Cymru candidates who are standing for election to the Vale of Glamorgan Council in the St Augustine’s Ward of Penarth .
The petition calls for a regular bus service to operate between Cardiff Central and Penarth between 23:00 to 05:00
The petition says that hiring a taxi to travel from Cardiff to Penarth during these late hours is just too expensive for most people .
The two candidates say that the Vale of Glamorgan Council should underwrite this night bus service to ensure the well-being and safety of travellers of all ages late at night.
Such a scheme would also benefit workers in Penarth’s so-called “night-time” economy who work in the restaurant and bar trades in the town but who live in Cardiff,.
