Published on : Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Arriva RailThe Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has today published its provisional findings on the award of the Northern franchise to Arriva. The CMA’s final report is expected by 3 November 2016.

 

Commenting on the publication of the provisional findings, Chris Burchell, Managing Director Arriva UK Trains said:

 

“We are pleased that the CMA in their provisional findings have recognised Arriva’s commitment to bringing a range of benefits to passengers through the Northern rail franchise, including through better trains and improved customer service.

 

“We have maintained throughout this process that the operation of the Northern franchise by Arriva alongside our existing bus and rail businesses does not create any competition concerns and so we are disappointed that the CMA has identified a small number of these in a handful of local areas.

 

“This remains an on-going process and Arriva is committed to continuing to engage constructively with the CMA to resolve their concerns and demonstrate that the award of the Northern rail franchise doesn’t lessen competition.“We remain fully committed to delivering our transformational plans for the Northern franchise for the benefit of all our passengers.”
