We have had bus companies reject our request for giving us locations of 
their bus stops and their routes and operating frequencies, on the 
grounds of making it too easy for competitors to work out their cost and 
make a lower bid.

Sounds quite stupid (any competitor worth their salt could find that out 
on their own) but if that's how people think then they probably would 
not hesitate taking someone to court...
