    It’s a disgrace at the moment.

    Wrexham Bus Station Could Soon Be Managed by ‘External Provider’

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    My take on the article:
    Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment and Transport, noted that the ‘move is designed to improve quality and provision of the bus and travel information provided at Wrexham Bus Station and provide a more safe and pleasant environment for the public to travel’.
    More throw away statements here, please tell us “how”?

    “there has been some concern of anti-social behaviour at bus station and also it’s to improve the appearance and improve the passenger experience”
    So PCSO’s for the anti social behaviour, and street cleaners – both of which are paid for by council tax.

    It’s not one of our core functions as a Council.
    Read “to be honest, we couldn’t give a sh1t about the service, we’ve got bigger fish to fry, and we need to get rid of this hot turd now as I’m sick of people complaining about it! The bus is for poor people, ‘bus w@nkers!‘” :)

    Dispersal Orders are fine , but in reality they only move the problem on to somewhere else.

    Fully agree — what is wrong with the good old fashioned style methods of making these people fit in with society – moving from one place to another is not a solution.
    Fundamental question WHY? are these young people being anti social in the bus station- what has happend to the youth club in town or places for them to ‘hang out’.

    Well, one thing is certain, the current ‘initiative’ is having little or no impact. Not half an hour ago, there were at least 7 or 8 of the dead heads comfortably ensconced in the bus station looking quite dreadful.
    Carol, I am not entirely sure that there would be a good uptake on your suggestion of youth clubs considering the miscreants that I saw were in their 20’s and 30’s. Doesn’t hold that kind of appeal really, does it?

    All these problems can be put down to lack of leadership!
    It’s an open admission of failure to carry out the remit of the job.

    If this is handed over to someone else can we look forward to reduced cost to the council as, obviously, whoever is being paid to look after it at present will have it removed from their responsibilities, hence downgrading their position.
    Or will it result in subsidies to a private company?
    Next question…..

    Strange, isn’t it.
    Not long ago the council website proudly proclaimed “Wrexham County Borough Council has a commitment to publicise public transport from and within the County Borough.”
    That, of course, is when they actually informed us of bus changes on the website, and had signage that at least partially worked.
    All mention of such a commitment seems to have vanished.

    The bus station was seen as a gateway to the town, and the spending of a fortune on a load of rubbish paving blocks, and street furniture, was seen as critical to creating a good impression.
    Talk about decorating a – well, you know what I mean!

    Now, it would appear, the bus station isn’t anything to do with the council and if you use the bus you are regarded as a non person!
