Press Release

The Go-Ahead Group plc

("Go-Ahead" or the "Group")

Go-Ahead shortlisted for Thameslink rail franchise

Go-Ahead and its joint venture partner Keolis (Govia) are delighted to be shortlisted to bid for the Thameslink franchise.

We are a highly experienced rail operator with a proven ability to deliver passenger improvements. With a wealth of knowledge of the proposed Thameslink network and vast experience of the London commuter rail market we believe we are well placed to deliver a successful bid.

Our experienced permanent bid team will be working hard over the coming months to understand the aspirations of stakeholders and we look forward to receiving the Invitation to Tender document from the Department for Transport.

Unfortunately we have not been shortlisted to bid for the Essex Thameside franchise and we will be seeking feedback from the Department for Transport.

For further information, please contact:
