P-04-627  Improved Commuter Train Services for North Wales Residents 

Petition wording

Although train fares across North Wales have risen at above the rate of inflation over a number of recent years the service offered to commuters has been reduced.

In particular the service offered at times convenient for most commuters to Bangor - home of one of Wales largest Universities, and also a major hospital (as well as North Wales busiest railway station in terms of passenger numbers!) - have been greatly cut over the last couple of years.

In particular we call for the reintroduction of the Chester - Bangor service which used to arrive at in Bangor at 09.36. (Ironically, whilst this service has been cut on week days, it still runs on a Saturday!).
