Urban Buses and Regional Trains

Body text

Keolis operates in the Netherlands as the brand Syntus which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Keolis.  Syntus has a long history of excellence as an operator of both trains and buses. In fact, the brand name Syntus was chosen to underscore the high synergies that come from operating both types of public transport.

Syntus provides public transport on the Veluwe in Gelderland, Overijssel and in Central Twente.  In addition, Syntus will be expanding its operations as new regions and modalities come under its management as a result of recent awards.  The Province of Utrecht has contracted Keolis to manage 210 buses for public transport. Beginning in 2017, Keolis will leverage its heavy rail expertise as the operator of the regional train service in Province of Overjissel.

Key figures:
