With regard to Regional Coordination 3, which includes the provinces of Cotopaxi, Tungurahua, Chimborazo and Pastaza, the report indicates that it has 226 vehicles. Of these, 89 are operational, 32 are inactive, 18 are damaged and 18 are to be withdrawn; Idle vehicles correspond to 14.15% of the total vehicle fleet.
Most of the vehicles have completed their useful life and due to movement on the third-order roads, there is frequent damage to the vehicles, which limits the normal activities of coordination, according to the report.
Another difficulty of coordination is that, due to the year of manufacture of the vehicles, they tend to lose sequence in their parts and components. They have to be imported and this leads to delay in repairing the vehicles.
For example, the Hospital de Puyo alone has five operational vehicles, two inactive, one damaged and one for accident.
