- 2014 Annual Report
- 27 MAR 2015
National Express has delivered a good performance in 2014 with Group revenue up 2.3% on a constant currency basis and both statutory and normalised profit before tax also up on a constant currency basis by 10% and nearly 7% respectively. Our free cash generation remains very strong, again beating our target for the year, and during the course of the year we have reduced net debt by over £80 million.
A purpose built health bus, complete with a fully trained nurse and consultation rooms, is now visiting National Express bus garages offering free health advice and support to all employees.
The bus was created following comments in our annual employee survey which praised our employee safety awareness but asked for similar support in health and wellbeing. The Health Bus was designed and constructed by our own engineers and fitters who adapted a redundant bus into a modern, mobile health facility offering two consultation areas and a waiting room.
National Express Foundation
The National Express Foundation is central to National Express Group's support for the wider community in which we operate in the UK.
The public order disturbances in July 2011 highlighted the issues facing young people living in inner-city areas in the UK. The disturbances involved a disproportionate number of people in the 15-24 year age group. Unemployment, boredom and lack of motivation among this group were all cited as factors.
