Dutch Railways Sabotaged Bids from Competitors

The state-owned Dutch railways, NS has sabotaged competing transport companies in bids for the train and bus transport in the province of Limburg.  These results were obtained from a yet-secret report commissioned by the Authority for Consumers and Market, which supervises the NS.   The NS manages the Dutch railway stations, and is thus obliged to make sure that in the case of bids, all bidders have an equal chance.  As a result of the sabotage, a subsidiary of NS obtained the monopoly for public transport in the province between 2016-2031.
