“Please help me persuade Rhondda Cynon Taf Council to reinstate mountail view bus stop or make a new one” – Maria Zaccaria

Description

Maria Zaccaria

This bus stop is the only accessible bus stop for people living on the mountain view estate, without having to walk a great distance to another stop. I am disabled and cannot always rely on others to take me around. I can just about make it to this bus stop, but then I am expected to walk a great further distance to get to another one.

I moved in to the estate with the assumption that busses stop at this stop but I am deeply saddened that it is not the case.

I also now have a new born baby that is not getting out much because of this lack of transport.

Please can someone urgently look at why busses do not stop here and look at a solution so that I and many of my neighbours can finally get places again.

Many thanks,

    Bus Stop not in use, causing huge distress

    hi maria,we moved into mountain view sept 2011,we love our house and all the neighbours are fab,the only thing apart from lack of a local shop (within walking distance) which to be honust we already new before we moved here,but just loved our house! we are really shocked as to how poor the bus service is here for such a big estate. on moving to here we did not change our sons school which meant he had to catch a service bus to bryncethin which we thought would be easy(living on such a big estate) but unfortunately and really anoyingly too, he had to walk right from the furthest part of mountain view(as we live at 91 mountain view) out of the estate and up the hill to hendreforgan,on a rainy day he gets absolutely soking,and now we have the same problem as he had now been enrolled at bridgend colledge,for that reason we would love to join your campain and hope that something gets done for all us residents of this lovely estate.
    thanks
    amanda
