The Big Bus Company is facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit over alleged anti-competitive behaviour.
The company, which is 15% owned by FTSE 250 giant and LegoLand owner Merlin Entertainment, and majority owned by Soho-based Quorn-owning private equity house Exponent, has allegedly, alongside Gray Line, ‘improperly prevented’ Go New York Tours from selling its tickets.
Gray Line also claims the company has conspired to prevent certain tourist attractions from working with it.
The Evening Standard also reported that Go New York Tours would be pursuing the two companies for ‘treble damages, costs of suit including reasonable attorney fees and interest, to the fullest extent permitted by law.’
The company also claims that its rival’s exclusive relationships with certain attractions have prevented them from doing business.
