Arriva PLC has acquired UK open access operator Grand Central Railway.

See press release from Arriva below [[linked]] and comment from Tom Clift, Managing Director, Grand Central Railway:

"Today opens a brand new chapter for Grand Central and for open access operations on Britain’s railways.

“The decision by Arriva, one of Europe’s largest transport undertakings, to acquire Grand Central is a huge vote of confidence in all our staff who have worked so hard over the last four years to deliver the very highest standards of customer service to the growing numbers of passengers using our routes.
“I will continue to lead Grand Central and will report directly into Bob Holland, MD of Arriva’s UK Trains division. Meanwhile Grand Central will remain a self-contained business with its own unique brand and identity. Our headquarters will continue to be based in York.”
