Text of Petition             

The people below would like to raise their concern about the poor public transport within Blaenau Gwent. This has led to residents having difficulty travelling to their place of work. They also experience problems attending Hospitals and Doctors for medical attention. The cut backs have also made travelling at best time consuming and arduous and in some cases impossible.
