Competition implications of Greater Western franchise award

Competition Commission notice (2 pages, PDF) inviting comments by Friday 21 October 2005 on the competition implications of the potential award of the Greater Western franchise to FirstGroup, National Express or Stagecoach. All three bids were referred by the OFT with reference to a potential lessening of competition between bus/coach and rail services on "a large number of" point-to-point passenger flows.
