National Express

Coach & Bus Order

National Express Group PLC
30 May 2007

                           National Express Group PLC                           

National Express Group places £69 million coach and bus order for UK operations 

National Express Group PLC ('National Express' or 'the Group') today announced
that it has placed new orders valued at £69 million for up to 480 coaches and
buses for its UK coach and bus divisions. Vehicle manufacturers Scania and
Alexander Dennis Ltd ('ADL') will supply the vehicles over a three year period
and the first vehicles will start to enter service in Autumn 2007.

As a result of this investment the Group's UK-wide coach network and bus
operations in the West Midlands and London will be fully accessible to all
customers including wheelchair users. The vehicles will be fitted with
state-of-the-art clean engine technology and boast the latest in fuel
consumption efficiency and emissions technology.

Group Chief Executive Richard Bowker said: 'We are focused on providing the
latest products and services to our customers and today's order confirms our
commitment to further upgrade our fleet to make it accessible to all.

'Buses and coaches are the most environmentally friendly ways to travel and
consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of using public
transport. We want to ensure we are well positioned to cater for that demand
and, as a leading provider of travel services, we are committed to sustainable
and responsible travel by providing our customers with the latest state of the
art vehicles on the market.'

The ADL order comprises single and double deck buses totalling £26 million. The
Scania order comprises single and double deck buses and Caetano Levante coaches
totalling almost £43 million.

Both the Scania and ADL vehicles are fitted with clean-burning engines which
comply with the latest European low exhaust emissions standard (Euro 4).

All of the buses will run on low-sulphur diesel, are fully DDA compliant
including low-floor easy-access for wheelchairs and pushchairs, and all have
CCTV fitted as standard. The 60-seater tri-axle Levante coaches will be fitted
with special lifts to help wheelchair users to board. The order will complement
the Group's existing roll-out of fully accessible vehicles which is currently
underway across its UK coach network.

                                    - ENDS -
