A concerted effort to achieve the energy transition
All over the world, Keolis is developing low-carbon mobility services that help combat climate change. By drawing on its expertise in alternative energies and a commitment to making public transport more efficient, the Keolis Group is helping local communities and citizens make the transition to a low-carbon society.
1) Developing alternatives to combustion engines and individual car use
Faced with the climate emergency, mobility actors are proactively stepping up efforts to find alternatives to combustion engines, reduce individual car use and promote the use of both public and soft modes of transportation. Keolis assists and advises public transport authorities in procuring and deploying low and zero-carbon vehicle solutions such as electric trams and buses, or buses that run on natural gas, and in developing and financing multimodal, low-carbon networks.
2) Encouraging new mobility habits
To accelerate the modal shift, the connection between different transport modes like trains, trams and buses needs to go further. These new behaviours require policies to encourage soft mobility, such as bikeshares or rentals, as well as on-demand transport, carpooling and carsharing.
3) Co-constructing sustainable mobility services throughout the entire community
Providing an alternative to the private car is especially important in suburban and rural areas. To promote this change, public transport authorities and Keolis must work together to construct a transport offer tailored to the needs and desires of passengers in these suburban areas.
