National Express Group PLC
Board Change

With the continued focus on local teams being responsible for operations and
business development and the consequent reduction in the role of the central
commercial function, National Express announces that Richard Brown, Group
Commercial Director, has today resigned as a director of National Express
Group PLC.

Richard has been with the Group for five years and became Commercial Director
in July 1999.

Commenting on Richard's departure, Phil White, Chief Executive, National
Express said: 'Richard has been a valuable member of the Board and I would
like to thank him for his input over the years. He has played an important
role in the development of the Group's well respected trains division.
Furthermore, as Chairman of the Association of Train Operating Companies he
has helped lead the industry during a particularly difficult period. As a
result of greater decentralisation within the Group, the role of a central
commercial function has become more limited and therefore, we have agreed with
Richard that it is now appropriate for him to move on.'
