Who Might Take Over From NXEA?
Last night three major rail operators said they would be interested in bidding for the current NXEA franchise. FirstGroup, who ran the First Great Eastern franchise prior to National Express, Virgin and Stagecoach have all indicated an interest.
However, they have all said that any decision on a potential bid will be subject to the terms of the franchise as advertised by the Department of Transport.
