CT Plus (Yorkshire) CIC v (1) Black and others (2) Lincolnshire Road Car Ltd UKEAT/0035/16
No service provision change when company carries out activities as a commercial venture on its own behalf
CT Plus ran a “park-and-ride” service under a contract with the local council by virtue of which it received a substantial subsidy. Lincolnshire Road Car, having grown impatient with a tendering process, decided to run a commercial service on the same route, using its own staff and buses, without a subsidy from the Council. As a result the Council terminated its contract with CT Plus.
