National Express motors on
NATIONAL Express survived a “notable reduction” in coach users in the aftermath of the Brussels terrorist attacks in March as the launch of its first German rail services helped drive up revenue 11 per cent in the first four months of 2016.
Underlying revenue not including new operations was up 4 per cent as the bus and rail group hailed a “strong start” to the year.
Passenger journeys on its South Essex c2c Rail services into London’s Fenchurch Street jumped 7 per cent after a new timetable attracted users from the tube network.
More carriages will be introduced in 2016, three years ahead of schedule.
