A petition to reinstate the former route of a bus service through Caister has attracted more than 100 signatures.
Kerry Barlow-Gedge, of Caister, started a petition to revert the No 1 bus from Martham to Lowestoft bus back to its original route, after it was changed last year.
The changes meant her partially blind father George Barlow, 85, has to catch a different bus to visit the James Paget University Hospital - the No 4 service - which does not stop directly outside the hospital.
Mrs Barlow-Gedge is now looking to meet with Great Yarmouth MP Brandon Lewis to discuss the issue, in hope that he can pass the petition on to First Eastern Counties, which operates the service.
She said: 'I just want to let the people who have signed the petition know where I have got with it.
'I have been around and collected signatures and now feel I have done everything I can and that there is nothing more than I can do now. It is out of my hands.'
