Campaigners are urging elderly residents to call for improved bus routes to stop their community from becoming isolated.
Pensioners in Rawdon are stepping up their campaign to ask for improved public transport links to help them travel around their community.
Residents living in Billing View claim that elderly people often struggle to get from Town Street to the shops and facilities at the traffic lights because there is no direct bus route.
They launched a petition last year.
But now they want residents to put their thoughts on paper following a city-wide review of bus services.
Campaigners say that pensioners are being forced to use taxis to get from sheltered accommodation along the A65 to attend classes at Billing View Community Centre or to visit Town Street.
Diana Al-Saadi, who helped to spearhead the campaign, has warned that people should have their say on how services are run before it is too late.
She said: “We need access to our local facilities.
“This is the chance now and it’s not going to return again.
“People need to air their views and ask Metro to consider getting public transport for people in this area.
“Rawdon people can’t even get to their own post office by bus or get down to the library.”
Campaigners are hoping that one of the existing buses which travels along the A65 could be diverted around Rawdon to service the main areas.
Ms Al-Saadi added: “We are still very determined to do everything possible to have our case seriously considered.
“Friends of Rawdon Community Library, now in the final stages of being handed over from LCC are keen to see such a public bus service.
“This is a social, health and environmental issue.”
Metro is reviewing the network of local bus services and is proposing some changes to the services it funds.
The consultation for services in Leeds will end next month.
