BUS services to an isolated community are to be slashed.
Pole Moor residents are outraged that the First bus company plans to cut the hourly 376 service to just four buses a day.
They say they will be marooned.
From Sunday, April 25, two buses in the morning and two in the early evening will reach the small community.
But an hourly service will follow the route as far as Salendine Nook, where buses will turn round at Laund Road.
Pole Moor residents are fighting to reinstate the all-day service for their community.
Eight-year-old Freddie Best has drawn a colourful poster calling for a rethink by First.
His architect father, Bill Best, 50, of Pole Gate, is angry. He goes by bus to Huddersfield railway station for the daily trip to work in Leeds.
From the end of this month, services will leave Pole Moor for Huddersfield at 7.14am and 8.14am and leave the bus station for Pole Moor at 5.30pm and 6pm.
Mr Best says he will be relatively unaffected by the changes, but other people will be harder hit.
"Public transport should be a service, not a corporate business driven by profit," he added.
"People in Pole Moor, an isolated community, rely on a regular bus service throughout the day - in particular, schoolchildren, students, the elderly and anyone who does not have access to a car."
Mr Best said of First: "All they are doing here is forcing more people to rely on their cars, which leads to increased congestion and pollution."
He added: "If they cut it down to two in the morning and two in the evening how long is it going to be before they cut those?"
Mr Best has been in touch with MP Kali Mountford, who has contacted the Government's Transport Department.
Pole Moor resident Polly Crowther, 16, works in Penistone. She said: "I use the service to get home from town at 12.30pm. I don't have a clue what I'm going to do."
Graham Riley, business director for First in Huddersfield, said the daytime service was being scrapped because of low passenger numbers. To continue it past Outlane was uneconomic.
