Going past the Loyang Bus Depot yesterday saw a big red old style double decker inside the perimeter with prominent Go-Ahead advertising and "Hiring Now" all over it. Walked past today but it had gone, so did not get a photo.

Interesting read, they are worried about the lack of genuine tenders, moreso no new companies stepping up to the breach. DFT willing to accept only two ‘genuine’; bids for franchises Lord Berkeley, who sits on RTM’s editorial board, had asked the department what the minimum number of bids for rail franchises should be to create the “necessary competitive tension to ensure value for money for the travelling public, and in particular whether they consider that three bids is sufficient for that purpose”.In response, transport minister Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, said: “Whilst the Department for Transport prefer to have three bids for each franchise competition, as was the established practice under the previous government, we are prepared to accept that on occasion, we may only have two genuine bidders.”The reference to the two “genuine”; bidders comes after First Group and Stagecoach were the only companies shortlisted last month to run the next South Western franchise.This news came shortly before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) released its ‘Reform of the rail franchising programme’ report, which claimed the DfT had made relatively “poor progress” in building up its franchise management capability since the collapse of the Intercity West Coast competition in 2012.The influential group of MPs also noted that the number of bids the DfT receives for franchise competitions has reduced, on average from four to three since the restart of the franchising programme in 2013. And while the department acknowledges the risk that some of the nine transport companies that currently run rail franchises may drop out of the market, it was unclear about how it plans to retain their interest.PAC has recommended the DfT should develop alternatives to its current commercial approach so it is well placed to deliver value for money if market interest falls to a level where intense competition cannot be guaranteed.At the time, Meg Hillier MP, chair of the PAC, said: “We are particularly concerned about the effects of declining competition within the programme.“Our report states that by its own measure, the department requires at least three bids per competition to increase the likelihood of receiving high-quality bids. Yet it was announced that only two companies will compete to run the South Western franchise from June next year.” Saying that, who would'nt be concerned when you have only First Group and Stagecoach as sole bidders on the South Western franchise !!

Well, frankly, it's about time we had a bit of a bounce. Will there be benefit from low oil price at some point?

Why do these shares continue to fall is it the announcement that tfl will take over a large portion of the rail franchise?

Plenty of good news recently with the German rail and Singapore bus contract wins. Good momentum over the last few months also, hopefully new highs.

Go-Ahead reportedly well placed to win Singapore bus deal Liberum says winning contract would be good start to expanding away from UK UK bus operator Go-Ahead hopes to expand to Singapore. According to analysts at Jefferies, local press reports suggest two of the original 10 bidders for a second package of bus routes being tendered have dropped out due to quality reasons, with Go-Ahead apparently putting in the lowest priced of the remaining bids. The winner is due to be announced by the end of the year. Jefferies said: Go-Ahead has submitted the lowest priced bid at S$498m (around £232m) for the 5-year contract (with possible two-year extension). That appears to be 6.5% below the low end of the range of competing bids (S$533m-S$631m or around £248m-£294m). Other bidders include Keolis, a joint venture of RATP Dev and Transdev and local competition. Earlier this year, Tower Transit (UK subsidiary of Australia’s Transit Systems Group) won the Bulim contract (the first package of bus routes tendered in Singapore). Its bid was a close third lowest on price, but was assessed to rank best on the combination of quality and price. Singapore’s Land Transport Authority said greater weight had been given to quality. Go-Ahead was the highest bidder in the Bulim process and we assume learnt from the experience. As a group that emphasises quality of product, we assume that with the lowest pitched bid for this second package, it must now be well placed in this contest. The contract being tendered is to operate 25 bus routes from the Loyang bus depot. The government will retain ownership of the buses, infrastructure and fare revenue and the winning operator will be paid to operate the services to specified standards. The contract will begin in the second half of calendar 2016. Crudely assume up to a 10% London margin (Singapore’s bus model is similar), and the Go-Ahead bid may represent up to around £4.6m per annum EBIT opportunity. That compares to [our estimated] group pretax profit at £112m for Go-Ahead in 2016 - so a helpful business to win. But Jefferies said the greater significance of winning the contract would be as a credible start to extending the group beyond its established UK bus and rail activities. Go-Ahead is currently down 14p at £24.56.

Jakes,, they have already fully hedged their fuel costs until the end of 2016 and agreed 25% of 2017 costs, so probably paying well over current market prices for juice at the mo.

Thanks for that info, I find it a bit strange for a 1 billion £ company to have just a handful of shares traded each day. I am hoping that the trend will re-establish its self soon.

Dull is good. And I note that increases in ticket costs are still ahead of inflation.

This is a dull board is there no one with some comments on this company I bought in on the thought of lower fuel costs and since then the share price has dropped with just a handful of shares traded looking back the long term trend has been good plus a reasonable yield Ideas anyone Jakes

Great results. Confidence abounds and rightly so, hence the Divi nudge up. Patience is key for the the next twelve months but rewards are there to be had, and after having been here for what seems an eternity,I believe that next year and thereon, will again be beyond expectations, maybe game changers. Someone will eventually sit up and take notice. Gl all.

I have held here for ages for the yield, for a takeover play, for one of the few companies that makes money from unregulated buses and now blow me they're going to be a major rail player too! Is it all too good to be true?
