MTR comments on Wales & Borders franchise

Jeremy Long, CEO – European Business, MTR Corporation, said: “Congratulations to Keolis Amey, we wish them every success with the franchise. MTR is very disappointed not to have been chosen to run the Wales & Borders franchise, and not to have the opportunity to bring our proven record of providing excellent passenger service, and of successfully delivering railway infrastructure, for the benefit of passengers and the wider community in Wales.”


“MTR submitted a strong bid and we thank them for their participation in the competitive dialogue process. We built a positive and constructive relationship with MTR’s bid team and were impressed by their collaborative approach throughout the process,” commented James Price, Chief Executive, Transport for Wales.
