    Buyout Firm Tears Up a $1.7 Billion Greyhound Bus Ticket

    U.S. private equity group Apollo confirmed on Tuesday that it won't make an offer for British train and bus operator FirstGroup Plc, which also owns America’s Greyhound network. Apollo didn’t say why it's backing away, and all we know from FirstGroup is that the price Apollo had in mind was too low to warrant further discussion. The U.S. buyout firm’s interest had drawn screams of “asset-stripper" from the left-wing opposition Labour party and trade unions.

    UK rail companies say fare system should be simplified

    Britain's train operators said they will start a process aimed at simplifying the current system of rail fares which means that customers using UK railways can end up paying more for tickets than they should. The industry body that represents the UK's train operators said on Tuesday that it was beginning a public consultation on fares and ticketing regulation, alongside which it would commission an independent report, before presenting proposals to government for reform. Britain's rail services were privatised in the 1990s and since then different companies have bid to run sections of the network.
