National Express Corporation promotes National School Bus Safety Week

National Express Corporation (NEC), a leader in student transportation, has been promoting safety awareness during National School Bus Safety Week, 20–24 October.

This year’s industry-wide public education campaign - “At my stop, You Stop!” - has highlighted the important role that motorists play in school bus safety. The theme has called on the public to observe stop arm laws and use extra caution when driving near school buses. 

NEC teamed up with local law enforcement agencies throughout the country to help crack down on stop arm violations. This effort includes bus drivers writing down the license plate of those who break the stop arm law, and notifying the police of specific stops where there is a high volume of violators. 

NEC has taken the opportunity to remind motorists, students, and parents, of some important school bus safety tips. 

Motorists 

  • You must stop for a school bus when its stop arm is extended and the bus lights are flashing
  • Use extra caution when driving near school buses or in a school zone

Students 

  • Stay out of the “Danger Zone” by keeping ten giant steps away from the bus at all times
  • Cross in front of the bus crossing gate and always remain in sight of the driver
  • Be alert around school buses; don’t text, talk on mobile phones or have headphones or ear buds in while at the bus stop

Michele McDermott, Senior Vice President of Safety at NEC said "At NEC, safety is our top priority - from our bus drivers and monitors, all the way up to our leadership team. That’s why we make it our job to continue educating students and the public about the importance of observing school bus safety. 

"Our primary goal is to provide the safest transportation possible for our students and we don’t take that responsibility lightly. National School Bus Safety Week is just one more way we can encourage everyone to use extra caution around school buses." 

School buses are one of the safest modes of transportation on the road. To further increase the safety of its buses, the company’s buses are equipped with electronic fleet management systems that offer GPS services, enhanced pre-and-post trip bus inspection procedures, and child-check assistance to ensure no sleeping children are left on the bus.

Company Overview

National Express Group is a leading transport provider delivering services in the UK, North America and Spain. Every year more than 650 million journeys are made on our buses, trains, light rail services and coaches.

c2c launches consultation on new timetable to tackle crowding

National Express train operator c2c is today launching a three-month consultation with passengers on a proposed new timetable to relieve crowding and improve connections.

Highlights from the proposed timetable, which would start in December 2015, include:

  • More capacity at the busiest times and the busiest stations, with 16% more services in the AM peak
  • Every train will stop at Barking, West Ham and Limehouse, creating a metro-style service
  • Four trains per hour minimum at every station during peak times
  • Faster off-peak journey times to and from London
  • Earlier first trains and later last services
  • New weekend services, with regular trains to Stratford and Liverpool Street and a new direct service from Rainham and Purfleet into central London on Sundays

The revised timetable is the first step in c2c’s plans for providing extra capacity over the next 15 years. In addition to changing the timetable, c2c will be:

  • Buying 17 new additional trains, which will provide around 20% more capacity and will start arriving from 2019
  • Rewarding season ticket holders who travel outside peak hours under our flexible season tickets, available from 2016
  • Providing live information to passengers in future, telling them where there's space on a train while they're waiting on the platform
  • Working with Network Rail to invest in and improve the infrastructure, to improve service reliability and provide quicker journey times

c2c Managing Director Julian Drury said: “We are proposing these timetable changes to address two of the biggest issues for our passengers: crowding, and their changing travel patterns that require frequent links to the main interchange stations. We’ll support this with other improvements to passengers’ journeys, such as investment in stations, new WiFi and smart cards, and compensation in future for trains delayed for as little as two minutes.

“This is a consultation, so we really do want passengers to look at the proposals for their station and to tell us what they think.”

Passengers can find tailored information about their individual stations and respond to the consultation at: www.c2crail.co.uk/consult_tt

c2c’s consultation will close on 15 January 2015.

Shake off the autumnal blues with Eurolines

Trans-European coach company Eurolines is offering people a fragrant deal to shake off the autumnal blues. 

The value coach operator is offering fares to Cologne in Germany for just £18 one way. 

If that wasn’t enough, customers can also get to Belgian capital Brussels for £18, or French city Lille for just £15. 

Passengers can use their coach tickets throughout November; however with fares only on sale until the 16th of next month, people are being urged to buy soon to avoid disappointment. 

The offer gives customers the chance to see Cologne’s famous Christmas market - opening on 24 November - for some festive shopping. 

Meanwhile the impressive European Parliament building in Brussels or Lille’s stunning Palais des Beaux Arts are well worth visiting. 

Eurolines President John Gilbert said: “What better way to start getting in the festive mood than taking an autumnal trip to these great European destinations. Our fares are great value, but available for a limited period only, so we’d urge people to book now.”

On the road for an Awesome Autumn

National Express is helping customers gear up for an Awesome Autumn as it launches a new website offering hints and tips for fun days out this half term. 

By visiting www.nationalexpress.com/onedayadventures customers can get inspiration for a range of trips and people from major cities can choose from a drop down menu that suggests places they can visit in a day. 

The site is launched as its revealed National Express is on the road to a record half term haul as tens of thousands of passengers have already booked to travel by coach. 

According to the UK’s largest coach operator’s advanced booking figures, more than 160,000 passengers have bought coach tickets – a record number for the October half term – and up 5 per cent on last year.  

To prepare for the swell, National Express has added hundreds of extra seats to its services, while the coach operator is selling tens of thousands of journeys from just £5 one way online to ensure customers can travel as affordably as possible. 

London is the most popular destination over the holiday with more than 45,000 people set to journey there. 

Closely following the capital in popularity are Stansted and Heathrow Airport as Brits jet off to foreign destinations in search of some sun. 

The top ten most popular destinations to travel to by coach between Friday 24 October and Sunday 2 November are: 

  • London           
  • Stansted
  • Heathrow       
  • Birmingham
  • Manchester
  • Bristol 
  • Leeds
  • Gatwick
  • Southampton             
  • Luton Airport

Sunday 26 October is the most popular day to travel with nearly 22,000 journeys booked, while London to Stansted Airport is the most popular route on that day. 

After London, Birmingham will see the next largest exodus of people with nearly nine thousand set to travel from Birmingham Coach Station over half term. 

National Express UK Coach Managing Director Tom Stables said: “With the summer holidays now a fading memory, its no wonder tens of thousands of Brits have booked up their half term trip – and what better way to do it than by coach. 

“Our services are comfortable, reliable and affordable while those looking to jet abroad can be dropped with their bags right at the airport door.”

National Express gearing up to get The Skills Show on the road

National Express is gearing up to get this show on the road – The Skills Show that is – with a totally unique one-off coach unveiled for the occasion.  

The UK’s largest coach operator is taking The Skills Show on the road for a special tour of the UK (Tuesday 21 October - Saturday 8 November) with a bespoke coach launched by Skills Show Patron and high-profile businessman Theo Paphitis.  

The Skills Show, which is part of Find a Future, is the UK’s largest skills and careers event and this year is being held in Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre from November 13 to 15 November. 

Between 21 October and 8 November, The Skills Show on the Road will travel to eight locations across the country including London, Birmingham, Durham and Bath.  

The special Skills Show on the Road coach has had its seats stripped out enabling it to showcase interactive challenges which enable young people to ‘Have a Go’ at a number of skills encompassing a range of potential careers including fashion and construction.  

At the heart of the roadshow is a campaign entitled “My Self, My Future”, which invites young people aged 14-21 to express themselves through spoken word, rap and vocal performance to articulate where they see their future taking them.  Performances will take place on a specially developed stage outside the coach. 

In addition, careers advice and apprenticeships information will be available on board, as well as the chance for visitors to meet local employers in the City & Guilds group to help them engage directly with organisations in their area. 

Getting on board with The Skills Show is the latest in a line of commitments under National Express’ Youth Promise. This is a commitment launched by the coach operator earlier this year to ensure young people can take advantage of affordable travel and have the opportunities they need to get on in life. 

Tom Stables, National Express UK Coach Managing Director said: "As part of our Youth Promise we're committed to setting young people on the right road to learn new skills. We're really excited to get our Skills Show coach on the road and are looking forward to seeing what young people from all over the UK have to offer." 

Gail Cohen, Director of Marketing, Content and Commercial Development at The Skills Show added: “We are delighted to be partnering with National Express once again to bring the skills message to young people across the country. 

“As one of National Express’ Youth Promise partners, we are committed to ensuring that young people nationwide are inspired about the future, and find out what they are good at as they move towards the world of work. The Skills Show on the Road is a great opportunity for us to engage with young people nationwide, but would not be possible without the generous support of National Express, for which we are very grateful." 

The Skills Show on the Road will culminate in Birmingham’s Centenary Square on 8 November, ahead of the start of The Skills Show 2014, which runs at the NEC Birmingham from 13 to 15 November 2014.  The event, the UK’s largest skills and careers event, is expected to welcome more than 80,000 young people during its three days, and will provide visitors with hands-on experiences that inspire them to explore further education, skills and apprenticeships.  For more information about The Skills Show on the Road, please visit www.theskillsshow.com/roadshow.  Details of The Skills Show are available at www.theskillsshow.com

c2c and Network Rail release: New entrance opens at Fenchurch Street station

Commuters will now experience an improved journey through one of London’s landmark stations after a new station entrance was opened today as part of Fenchurch Street’s £4m upgrade. 

The new entrance, on Cooper’s Row, will help passengers move through the station more quickly and ease rush-hour congestion in the most crowded parts of the station. It is a third entrance for the station, adding to the existing front entrance on Fenchurch Place, and the Tower Hill entrance. 

This represents a major milestone in the joint station upgrade between Network Rail and National Express train operator c2c, which will also create a second staircase from the station’s mezzanine level to the Cooper’s Row and Tower Hill entrances.?

Richard Schofield, Network Rail Route Managing Director, said: “With more than 46,000 people using the station at peak times every day, the new entrance will help to reduce congestion and make a positive difference to passengers. 

“Once the project is complete, these improvements will create a better flow of traffic through the station, reducing commuter congestion at peak times to allow passengers to enter and exit the station with greater ease.” 

Julian Drury, c2c Managing Director, said: “This upgrade will make Fenchurch Street less cramped and crowded, and we hope that passengers already noticed the difference this morning. We will continue to ensure the station operates smoothly with minimal disruption to passengers while the remaining work is done.” 

Fenchurch Street is the busiest station on the c2c route, with over 230,000 passengers a week using the station at peak times. 

The project is funded through Network Rail’s Discretionary Fund, aimed at providing congestion relief and increasing capacity.

National Express retains and grows major Spanish coach contract, securing up to €600 million of revenue

National Express Group PLC ("National Express" or "the Group") is a leading international public transport operator, with bus, coach and rail services in the UK, Continental Europe, North Africa and North America. 

National Express is delighted to announce that it has retained and grown its largest Spanish contract to have so far come up for renewal. 

The Group's Spanish business, ALSA, has been awarded two contracts tendered by the Diputacion Foral of Bizkaia (the government of Bizkaia). The contracts are for regional commuter coach services across the Bilbao metropolitan area.

The contracts have been awarded for 10 years with an option for a 5 year extension. Together the contracts are worth over €40 million in annual revenue, securing ALSA over €600 million in total over the 15 years. They are due to start in the coming weeks. 

This success has added significance as it not only includes one of the largest contracts ALSA currently operates - and the largest to have so far come up for renewal - it also adds new services and revenue. 

This award also comes on the back of other notable successes this year, including: the retention of the Essex Thameside ('c2c') franchise for a further 15 years; the renewal of our largest Transit contract in North America - the RIDE paratransit services in Boston; and the recent award of a contract to our Joint Venture to run bus services in Bahrain, opening up the Middle Eastern region for further growth. 

Dean Finch, Group Chief Executive of National Express, said: "I am extremely pleased that we have been able to secure these significant contracts through the high quality of our bid. As the largest Spanish contract to have so far come up for renewal, I am delighted we have not only retained the service, but also grown the size of the contract. We look forward to continuing to serve the people of Bizkaia for many years to come." 

Notes
Bizkaia took the opportunity of the renewal process to reorganise their coach concessions. ALSA won two of the five let. These two contracts combined are larger than the previous concession ALSA operated.

Grassroots initiative sees Tom take to the turf

National Express supports communities at a grassroots level across the UK so it is fitting that the coach company’s managing director this month (Saturday 11 October) launched an initiative to support soldiers on the centre circle of a football pitch.

Joined by Normandy veterans and football players, Tom Stables, National Express UK Coach Managing Director, took to the turf to launch 'Seats for Soldiers', a scheme that sees the UK’s largest coach operator give away hundreds of tickets to troops stationed at Aldershot Garrison to watch Aldershot Town Football Club.

The unique partnership, which will benefit the club and locally-based troops, forms part of National Express’ Military Promise – a groundbreaking commitment to support those who serve - or have served - in the Armed Forces.

Courtesy of National Express hundreds of serving personnel were out in force to watch the match which saw Aldershot Town FC, or ‘The Shots’ as they are affectionately known, take on Bristol Rovers. The thrilling game saw fans on the edge of their seats with plenty of goals and a final score of 2-2.

Tom Stables, National Express UK Coach Managing Director said: "As a business we are committed to adding value to the communities in which we serve so it seems appropriate by supporting 'Seats for Soldiers' we’re able to support to a local club and honour our Military Promise to boot".

Richard Graham, creator of the Seats for Soldiers scheme added: "We are aiming to make Aldershot the most inclusive and community-focused club in the land. The local Army personnel are very much part of the fibre of our community and we are delighted that we can bring the club closer to them with the fabulous support of National Express."

The initiative is the latest in a wide-ranging package rolled out by National Express to support the Armed Forces. Notably, the National Express 'Military Promise', saw the coach company being selected as the first company in the UK to sign the government’s Corporate Covenant for delivering a package of benefits including guaranteed job interviews for veterans.

Dynamic duo Centro and National Express West Midlands scoop top partnership award

A ground-breaking collaboration delivering wide-ranging benefits for bus passengers in the West Midlands has been recognised with a top transport industry award.

The Partnership Plus agreement between Centro, the region’s transport co-ordinator, and bus operator National Express West Midlands won Partnership of the Year at the National Transport Awards in London.

The awards were judged by the great and the good of the transport industry.  The judges were Professor David Begg Chief Executive of Transport Times, Louise Ellman MP Chair of the Transport Select Committee, Graham Pendlebury from the DfT, Anthony Smith Chief Executive of Passenger Focus and Stephen Joseph Director of the Campaign for Better Transport.

Partnership Plus was signed in 2013 and will see a string of investments and innovations delivered by 2015 when it comes up for review.

These include:

  • The introduction of Sprint rapid transit
  • 300 new buses across the West Midlands
  • Ten new ‘Gold’ corridors with significantly improved vehicles, information and bus priority
  • New Real Time Information displays
  • More CCTV on buses
  • Expanded on-bus cleaning

It is the fourth agreement in the pair’s Transforming Bus Travel partnership series.  All three of the previous partnership’s have delivered 100% of their commitments, led to increases in customer satisfaction and major investment.

 Peter Coates Managing Director of National Express West Midlands said:

 “Our partnership with Centro has delivered record-breaking investment, major improvements in customer satisfaction and a 65% decrease in on-board anti-social behaviour.  We are proud of this award but it is important to stress that this is not the end of the road for bus improvements in the West Midlands just a sign we are on the right track.”

Cllr John McNicholas, the chairman of Centro, added: “I am delighted that Partnership Plus has been recognised in this way.

“It is an initiative that is transforming bus travel in the West Midlands and it is deserved recognition of the hard work of the Putting Passengers First committee, Centro staff and their counterparts at National Express West Midlands.

“Centro and NXWM are both dedicated to transforming bus travel so that the passenger reaps the maximum benefit.

“Partnership Plus is a hugely important part of that aim and I look forward to its continued success."
