FirstGroup plc is one of the leading multi-national transport providers in the World, with over 117,000 employees worldwide, four rail franchises and a substantial North American presence. In the UK alone we carry around two and a half million bus passengers a day.
First Travel Solutions (FTS) is a stand-alone business within the Group. Whilst the business was created to provide road transport for rail replacement operations, it has more recently used the structure and scale of the business to offer a similar managed transport product to clients in the MICE, Events, Festivals and corporate travel sectors.
FTS is not just a broker. We plan and manage transport with much of our emphasis being on pre-event planning, scheduling, risk assessment, procurement and then’ on the ground ‘management.
We also work with carefully selected partners to provide advice and assistance with crowd management and security, traffic management and site planning.
FTS is fully certified to ISO standards- 9001 (Quality Management);
14001 (Environmental Management, and 18001 (Health and Safety Management Standards)
