Why choose Keolis?
Keolis is equipped to meet the challenges of modern public transport across the world thanks to its multi-modal expertise and a strong knowledge-management culture firmly rooted within the group across all of its subsidiaries.
The group brings its public transport authority clients a full range of expertise and solutions. Its majority shareholder SNCF, the French national railway company, brings key support, experience and expertise to a number of projects.
Throughout all of its activities and countries, the group has a proven track record in attaining high standards of reliability, availability and punctuality, thanks to the implementation of operations and maintenance processes targeting the optimal delivery of public transport services. As a partner to transport authorities, Keolis has the capacity to adapt to changing needs and expectations, constantly delivering the high standards of quality and security imperative in today's public transport provision.
One of the group's key strengths is its ability to accompany public transport authorities in the construction of new transport networks or extensions to existing networks. In light rail projects, Keolis brings the operator's viewpoint to the table, helping authorities to financially optimise their operations throughout the lifetime of the light rail system. On bus networks and at the request of PTAs, Keolis often redesigns routes and timetables to account for changing lifestyle patterns detected by its own specialist research.
During the period running up to operations, Keolis draws on its extensive experience gained from networks in France and elsewhere. It assigns multinational teams of experts to the project and brings design and engineering expertise to the preparation phase, as well as leading training programmes for operations staff.
