Stagecoach acquires Norfolk Green

Norfolk Green's ADL Trident SN12EHO at Norwich Bus Station
on X29 service to Fakenham during April this year
After much speculation it has finally been confirmed that the Stagecoach Group has acquired Go West Travel Limited, trading as Norfolk Green

Kings Lynn based Norfolk Green operates some seventy buses on its services covering Norfolk plus parts of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

Already there is speculation that First's X1 service between Lowestoft and Peterborough may be of interest to Stagecoach, with the latter either making a bid to take it over or compete directly against it. Just to remind you this is strictly only a rumour and, rest assured, eastnorfolkbus will report the facts as they happen

Whilst Stagecoach has, up to now, remained fairly quiet about the acquisition, there is a press release on the London Stock Exchange website which can be viewed by clicking HERE
