Quotes

"The biggest problems people seem to have is getting back from town" she said
Ali Thomas, leader of Neath Port Talbot Council, welcomed the change. He said: "With more operators than ever using the bus station, it is important that bus users are confident in knowing who is providing the service they want to use and that they can go directly to the bay they need."
Mr Lewis added: "I think it's tremendous news because at the end of the day, if you take students going to college, they are not earning money, so an extra £5 a day is a lot of money — it's an extra burden for them."
