Through its joint venture in China, Keolis opened a new section of the Songjiang tram network on 10 August, bringing its total coverage up to 27 kilometres and the number of stations served to 40. In a bid to reduce numbers of urban car journeys, the network is intended to carry some 170,000 passengers per day. This milestone is important for Songjiang residents and visitors to it – who are now able to rely on a sustainable and comfortable shared mobility solution for getting around the city –, as well as for Keolis, which is bolstering its presence in China and shoring up its position as a leading global tram operator.
