Keolis is a headline partner of the sixth edition of the Autonomy exhibition, which, as in 2020, will be held in a 100% virtual format. More than just an exhibition, this event is an authentic platform for exchanges and meetings dedicated to innovation, bringing together all the players in sustainable and intelligent mobility alongside cities and local authorities. In this exhibition, Keolis will be presenting its vision of tomorrow's mobility and its latest innovations. Our experts will present Keolis’ vision of mobility as well as the company’s latest innovations during conferences and roundtables discussions.
On 26 April 2021, Keolis started operating the second 100% electric Bus Rapid Transit (e-BRT) line of the Chronoplus transport network, linking Tarnos to Bayonne, in the south-west of France, on behalf of the Basque Country Public Transport Authority SMPBA (Syndicat des Mobilités Pays Basque Adour). The first e-BRT line, linking Bayonne to Biarritz, entered service in September 2019.
The new line is 10 km long and features 24 stations and seven 100% electric vehicles which will carry approximately 90,000 passengers per month. This new line will increase the transport offer by 25% (more frequency) and with the objective of increasing ridership by 50%.
