Keolis is the global leader in automated metros

Keolis is a pioneer in automated metros, and launched the world’s first driverless network in Lille, France, in 1983. Today, the Group is the global leader in the industry, with four networks currently in operation, totalling more than 450 million journeys per year. Running on rubber tires, rails, or racks, automated metros are an effective transport solution thanks to their high passenger capacity and limited carbon footprint (zero CO2 emissions). A centralised control system means operators can adapt the frequency and number of trains in service in real time, providing passengers with a fast, safe, and reliable mode of transport. And Keolis continues to expand its global presence: following the takeover of operations for London’s DLR network (Docklands Light Railway) in the UK, the Group is using and adapting to Asia the expertise it has developed in France. Public transport authorities in Hyderabad, India, and Shanghai, China, have chosen Keolis to operate new, high capacity automated metro lines.
