As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle on 16th August, Stephanie has commented on the proposed changes to bus timetables in Barnsley that are set to take effect from September.
Commenting, she said:
“Buses are a lifeline for people in communities like Barnsley, and changes to services can have a profound impact on the lives of residents.
“Reductions and redirections can leave people isolated, unable to attend appointments, get to the shops, or faced with the choice of using expensive alternatives to go about their lives.
“As I’ve stated in Parliament, bus services should be operated with the needs of passengers in mind, not profit, and the impact of these amendments will provide further evidence to the Sheffield City Region review currently underway as to whether private bus companies are best placed to manage services.”
