22-08-2019Keolis’ Australian subsidiary Keolis Downer has been awarded a new contract by Western Australia Public Transport Authority to operate buses in Geraldton, a city 450km north of Perth (Western Australia) with a population of around 40,000 residents.
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.
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 Downer, operator of Yarra Trams, is currently delivering services to peak patronage across its network, with Melbourne’s major events season underway.
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.
