On Tuesday 12th of February PEP drivers arrived at the organisations fleet of buses to discover two of them had been targeted by thieves. These thieves had expertly removed the Catalytic Converters from two of the newer buses.
Not only will this be costly for us but we will be down two buses for a considerable amount of time! This means we are running with a reduced fleet affecting our ability to provide a smooth service to some of those most in need.
We would like to confirm that PEP has spent the last years trying to identify secure parking for the buses. The council were also unable to identify a location. We have tried every space, business etc. throughout North Edinburgh and surrounding areas to no avail!
