Abus has called on Bristol’s Mayor to help in ending the campaign of harassment that some Council employees seem to be engaged in against the company.

The latest example is the issue of a penalty charge notice to an Abus bus for driving in a bus lane while operating a timetabled journey.

This follows the issue of parking tickets to buses waiting time at locations agreed with the city’s Public Transport team.

Abus MD Alan Peters claimed other operators did not get the same penalties.

The council did not respond to CBW’s request for a comment.
