Souter interested in Greyhound
Stagecoach chief executive Brian Souter has expressed interest in bidding for US express coach operator Greyhound if First Group decides to sell the operation.
First is set to acquire Greyhound as part of its £1.9bn takeover of US bus giant Laidlaw International. The Aberdeen-based group is primarily interested in Laidlaw’s yellow school bus operations. It is currently conducting a review into Greyhound to decide whether to retain the 1,500-vehicle company or dispose of it.
