On 30 March 2020, the Department for Transport (DfT) awarded Govia, the joint venture (JV) between Keolis and Go-Ahead Group, an extension to its current contract to operate the Southeastern railway network, in the London area, up to 31st March 2022. The UK’s first high speed rail network, Southeastern is also one of the busiest rail networks in the UK, carrying over 180 million passengers per year. This extended contract will enable Keolis and its partner to boost capacity and punctuality of the network and, in the short term, to focus on providing services for key workers during the Covid-19.

While the world experiences an unprecedented health crisis, Keolis continues its public service mission and has modified its activities to limit the spread of COVID-19. Initiatives to support medical staff are growing across our subsidiaries.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public transportation activities must be modified. Even if the authorities ask citizens to limit their travel, public transport services remain operational and Keolis is participating in the fight against the spread by implementing the appropriate measures.
