Buses after an evening kick off

Not sure if the club or any supporters groups can do anything to organise a better bus service after a Saturday early evening kick off?

After the game ended there was ONE bus in the bus station going to Padiham. It left ten minutes late and there were still loads of passengers on the concourse.
