Keolis began the operation of the first of three automated metro lines in Hyderabad (India) on 29 November, 2017. The new contract highlights the Group’s expertise in mass transit, and confirms its place as the world leader in automated metro and the success of its international development strategy.
Following the launch of PlanBookTicket in France, Keolis has launched helloGo in the Netherlands, an all-in-one digital multimodal solution. This is the first time the Netherlands has offered an app covering all modes of transport, allowing passengers to manage all steps of their journey on their smartphones. An innovative tool that confirms the Group’s progress in connected mobility.
After being awarded the operating contract for Shanghai’s first automated metro line in April 2016, Keolis has now been chosen to operate a second line which will connect all four terminals at Pudong International Airport in Shanghai, starting in 2019. The new contract confirms the Group’s position as a world leader in automated metro and reinforces Keolis’ presence in the Asian mass transit market.
For the first time in the UK, the public was invited to trial autonomous electric shuttles operated by Keolis. For a month, passengers were able to try this new mode of ecological transport, which has begun to attract a growing number of cities as it offers a new response to mobility problems in urban centres.
Another success for Keolis in the United Kingdom: the Group’s joint venture with Amey has been chosen to operate and maintain Greater Manchester’s tram network. With 96km of track, it is the largest tram network in the country.
