This is not the first time that Lothian have taken this step.

A spate of antisocial behaviour saw the transport company cancel all of their services after 7pm back in March.

This decision was made after an incident where youths threw stones at a bus near the Royal Infirmary Hospital.

A similar attack occurred around the same time in Niddrie where a driver was injured after a window was smashed.

The trams have also been affected after police investigated an incident where a window was smashed near the Saughton tram stop also in March.

Edinburgh City Councillors and Police Scotland have been speaking out against the attacks, urging parents to keep an eye on their children.
