firstgroup plc (FGR) Key Developments

FirstGroup Sign Agreement with the Department for Transport to Operate the First Great Western Rail

FirstGroup signed an agreement with the Department for Transport to operate the First Great Western rail franchise until April 1, 2019, which could also be extended by up to one further year at the DfT's discretion. FirstGroup s experience of managing the route over many years will be crucial to the successful delivery of the major programme of infrastructure upgrades on the network. First Great Western will see the large fleet upgrade on the route in a generation, with new or updated trains planned for every area of the network. This will result in additional and more frequent services, using faster and more comfortable trains offering improved amenities such as free Wi-Fi. Journey times from London to Oxford, Bristol, South Wales, and Devon and Cornwall will reduce. Stations will be upgraded with investment in facilities including security, customer information, accessibility and more car parking and bike storage. During the new franchise period a £2.2 million community investment fund will enable station and train service improvements around lower income communities. There will also be programmes to address accessibility.

UK Department for Transport Signs TransPennine Express Rail Extension Contract with FirstGroup

The UK Department for Transport has signed a TransPennine Express rail extension contract agreement with FirstGroup, offering more seats, better services and Wi-Fi at stations across the north of England. The new contract extension will allow First TransPennine Express to continue operating services in the north of England and Scotland for another year, until April 2016.
