The organization has expressed its commitment to addressing such incidents seriously and has apologized to the affected women for the unacceptable behavior.

Incidents of Sexual Harassment:

According to the women who spoke to ITV, they experienced sexual harassment while waiting for rail replacement bus services between Pontypridd and Treherbert on separate occasions.

A man claiming to be a TfW worker approached them and subjected them to inappropriate comments and questions of a sexual nature.

It remains unclear whether these incidents involved the same individual.

Uncomfortable Interactions:

One of the women, aged 26, reported being approached by a man who identified himself as a TfW worker.

She alleged that he asked her inappropriate sexual questions and made comments about her appearance.

Persistent Harassment:

Another woman, aged 22, shared her experience of feeling extremely uncomfortable at the bus stop.

After being approached by a man wearing high-visibility clothing who asked if she was waiting for the rail replacement bus, he continued to engage her despite her attempts to disengage.

He complimented her looks and expressed his fondness for girls in the area, even considering moving closer to them.

Inappropriate Advances:

The third woman, aged 23, claimed that a staff member made inappropriate remarks about her body and expressed a desire to have children with her.

This encounter left her feeling very unsafe and violated.

TfW’s Response and Actions:

Transport for Wales’ Chief Customer and Culture Officer, Marie Daly, issued an apology to the affected women and emphasized the seriousness with which TfW treats such allegations.

The organization is working with various agencies to provide support for their rail replacement bus services and has committed to conducting a thorough investigation into these incidents.
