Listing plan for public transport firm

The German owner of Arriva could decide to float the public transport firm on the stock exchange.

State-owned railway group, Deutsche Bahn, is mulling the idea to raise extra cash as its debt pile grows; it is now nearly £18 billion.

Deutsche Bahn originally planned to float both Arriva — based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear — as well as its logistics arm, Schenker, in 2016, with the aim of raising £4 billion. After the UK voted to leave the EU, however, it chose to shelve the proposal, saying it would be ‘throwing money out of the window’.

Chief executive, Richard Lutz, said: ‘It may well be that these old plans are put back on the table.’
