National Express credited a business-wide overhaul with driving sales growth in its bus, coach and rail divisions in the UK.

The group reported a 7 per cent rise in revenues at its rail and coach units in the six months to 30 June while bus sales were up 6 per cent. The bus division has been revamped with new fare structures and improved route management, and there has been new investment in coach and rail.

The company, which this year reached a truce with rebel investor Elliott Advisors, added it was on course to improve full-year margins across the board.
