01-18-2017. A new operator will run Greater Manchester’s iconic Metrolink network – now the largest of its kind in the UK – from summer. KeolisAmey, a joint venture partnership of UK public transport operator, Keolis, and infrastructure asset management specialist, Amey, will take over the reins when contracts with RATP Dev and MPT end in July 2017. Their appointment follows a competitive process led by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) involving three other shortlisted bidders, and has been ratified by Greater Manchester’s Combined Authority leaders.
Another success for Keolis in the United Kingdom: the Group’s joint venture with Amey has been chosen to operate and maintain Greater Manchester’s tram network. With 96km of track, it is the largest tram network in the country.
In the wake of CES 2017, Keolis and Navya, in partnership with the City of Las Vegas, are now offering residents of the world’s entertainment capital a unique passenger experience: to travel around the city centre aboard a driverless, autonomous and electric vehicle.
By introducing the first four of 70 new 100% electric vehicles for PAM75 by the end of 2018, Keolis is instigating the clean energy transition for France’s leading provider of transport for passengers with reduced mobility. This initiative is in line with the City of Paris’ environmental objectives, and makes the Group a pioneer in sustainable mobility for people with disabilities.
