Following thorough preparations and testing, Keolis, through its Chinese joint-venture, successfully opened its first section of the Songjiang tram line on 26 December 2018 and welcomed its first passengers.
The open section is 13.9 km-long, with 20 stations and connects into Shanghai’s existing metro Line 9.
This important milestone reached by Keolis, reinforces its presence in China and its position as a world leading operator and integrator of shared mobility to better support urban mobility needs in China. Keolis pioneered the first automated metro line in Shanghai and will soon add to this, with the launch of an automated metro service at Shanghai International Airport.
10-17-2018 Keolis has been awarded a €17.3 million-a-year contract to operate and manage the Greensboro Transit Authority’s (GTA) fixed-route bus and paratransit services starting in January 2019. The fixed route service comprises 16 routes and five Higher Education Area Transit (HEAT) routes, delivering approximately 4 million passenger trips annually. GTA’s paratransit services provide an additional 250,000 journeys per year.
24-09-2018 On Monday 24 September, 2018 Keolis opened a new section of the automated metro line 1 in Hyderabad, adding 16 km of track to the existing 30 km. With this new section, the network is now 46 km long and is expected to carry more than 150,000 passengers per day. This achievement paves the way for the final phase of the network and confirms Keolis’ leadership in automated metro systems
Keolis, through its Chinese joint-venture Shanghai Keolis, has been awarded its first tram contract in China by Songjiang Tramway. The five-year contract covers the operations and maintenance of the tram network in the Songjiang District of Shanghai. The network, which connects to Shanghai’s existing metro Line 9, will open in two phases: the first one on 25 December 2018, and the second in mid-2019.
Keolis, which recently opened the first automated driverless metro line in Shanghai and won the contract to operate the automated metro at Shanghai International Airport, reinforces its presence in China and enhances its reputation as a pioneer and world leader in multimodal expertise.
On 10 August 2018, Keolis, a pioneer in autonomous shared mobility, in collaboration with its partner NAVYA, announced the launch of a long-term demonstration project for an autonomous electric shuttle in Candiac, Quebec.
For the first time in Canada, an 100% autonomous electric shuttle will circulate on a public road in real operating conditions, thus extending the existing public transport offer to fully meet the mobility needs of Candiac’s residents.
