Petition to Gwynedd Council, Mr Dafydd Wyn Williams

Keep Tanygrisiau Clipa bus service providers John's Coaches & prevent any future changes.

Dafydd Wyn WilliamsGwynedd CouncilCouncil OfficesShirehall StreetCaernarfonGwyneddLL55 1SH I am writing to express my concern regarding the proposed changes to the number 37 bus service, and the local family run bus travel service providers 'John's Coaches'.  It is to my understanding that Gwynedd Council intend to change service providers of the number 37 bus service, ' The Tanygrisiau Clipa'.  At present this service is provided by local family business 'John's Coaches' of Manod road Blaenau Ffestiniog. It is to my understanding that Gwynedd Council intend to make changes that will bring an end to the 18 years of dedicated service provided by John's Coaches, by replacing them with Penygroes firm 'Express Motors'. I, as a local resident of Blaenau Ffestiniog oppose this decision, and urge Gwynedd Council to reconsider making such changes.  To the local community of Tanygrisiau/Blaenau Ffestiniog, the service provided by John's Coaches is more than the average travel service. To the elderly residents of Tanygrisiau, John's Coaches are their reassurance that despite their limited mobility capability, John's Coaches will safely get them to their destination and also safely return them back to the safety of their homes. John's Coaches are a service that often 'go that extra mile' in order to make their journey as easy and as comfortable as possible. Their journey is provided with care and compassion, with an understanding of one's needs & capabilities.  To the parents of the community, the service provided by John's coaches is their reassurance that their children will safely reach their destination, and safely return following their journey. If ever such an incident occurred when a child failed to return home, the parents of Tanygrisiau are able to rely on John's Coaches, with their knowledge of the local family's & family members, to inform them of any information regarding their child and their use of the number 37 bus service which could help to locate their child. John's Coaches is more than just a transport service to the local community of Tanygrisiau/Blaenau Ffestiniog. It is 18 years of trust building, it is a dedicated service that we locals depend upon. John's Coaches being the bus service providers of the number 37, is in our opinion a service that 'Can not be replaced'.  We, residents of Tanygrisiau/Blaenau Ffestiniog urge you 'Gwynedd Council to reconsider bringing an end to such a reliable/trustworthy/dedicated service, and to prevent such change occurring to the 18 years of loyal service provided by John's Coaches (number 37) to date.  M Williams
