UK Bus Market Overview
The largest five operators represent around 70% of the UK deregulated bus market, with the remainder of the market made up of a large number of private operators. Active competition comes from national and local bus operators, as well as private car and rail. Economic regeneration and environmentally driven public transport present growth opportunities over the car, with mass public transport providing solutions for cleaner air and congested cities.

UK Coach Market Overview
Our coach business has the only nationwide network of services, with other competitors tending to focus on specific regions or corridors. Selective competition comes from rail, particularly on discounted fares, and from large bus operators and localised services. Drivers for demand include the level of fare discount to rail, cost of private motoring, access to airports, direct routes not addressed by rail and environmental friendliness. Customer satisfaction is also an important driver for longer-term loyalty.
- Revenue growth through competitive pricing, better distribution channels and greater understanding of customers and their needs
