I am campaigning for the restoration of bus services in parts of Bridgend and Penyfai, following the decision of Easyway bus company to cease trading. I am asking Bridgend County Borough Council to restore services in Oaklands, Broadlands, and Penyfai. Additionally, I am asking for a service that travels past Glanrhyd Hospital to be reinstated.

I am deeply concerned with the news that Easyway will cease trading after 31 July. The loss of these services will massively impact those in our community and beyond. These routes provide access to vital services such as the Princess of Wales Hospital and the Town Centre.
I’m looking to nominate a Constituency Responsible Business Champion for 2022. This is a great opportunity to recognise businesses that work closely with charities, clubs or schools to support the community.
