Statement re: EAST ANGLIA FRANCHISE COMPETITION



FirstGroup is disappointed not to have been awarded the East Anglia rail franchise after submitting a compelling, deliverable, and value for money bid.

We continue to be disciplined in our approach to bidding for UK rail contracts and will seek feedback from the Department for Transport to help shape our approach to future competitions.
