02-18-2019 Keolis’ Australian subsidiary Keolis Downer, has started operating Newcastle’s new light rail service as part of the city’s multimodal transport network. Operations are starting ahead of schedule, giving local residents and visitors the opportunity to benefit from the new service sooner than expected. This new milestone reinforces Keolis’ presence in Australia where it has introduced and operated light rail networks, buses, on-demand transport and autonomous electric vehicles since 2009. It also illustrates Keolis’ commitment to support the delivery of seamlessly integrated, shared mobility systems that revitalise cities and makes them more enjoyable and more liveable
04-24-2018 updated on 05-22-2018G:link, the tram network operated by Keolis Downer and GoldlinQ played a central role in the Queensland Government transport plan, carrying more that 1.1 million passengers. G:link operated 24/7 with services running every six minutes during peak periods.
Keolis Downer hired and trained more than 350 extra staff to ensure the service ran smoothly
Keolis, who has been operating the Gold Coast (Australia) tram network since 2014, opened a new 7.3km extension on 17 December 2017. This extension enhances the multimodality of Gold Coast’s transport network, and therefore helps the state of Queensland in their ambitions to accelerate the modal shift, in this dynamic and touristic coastal city.
By signing a strategic partnership with IVADO, Keolis will benefit from the expertise of one of the most important global excellence centres dedicated to mass data analysis, to develop innovative urban mobility solutions.
