OPTIMIZING THE PERFORMANCE OF EACH NETWORK
Despite increasing pressure on finances, public transport authorities (PTAs) face significant investment demand to increase network capacity, upgrade existing infrastructure and extend services to new areas, while delivering a first-class passenger experience. The equation is equally complex in less populated areas, which have limited resources to operate networks serving vast regions with multiple population centres. As the day-to-day operator of networks around the world, Keolis is a natural partner to assist PTAs as they seek to continually optimise economic efficiency in pursuit of enhanced mobility. To do this, we’re using all available levers, such as the design of high-performance and attractive mobility offers and tighter control of operating costs, thanks to extremely rigorous maintenance and operating processes.
With assets worth €50 billion managed by over 10,000 staff worldwide, our track record in asset management enables us to advise and accompany PTAs in their asset management and medium and long-term investment strategies.
VERSAILLES’ NEW NETWORK: SUCCESS ACROSS ALL LINES
To meet the evolving mobility needs of the 270,000 inhabitants of the Versailles urban community, just southwest of Paris, we restructured the bus network (21 lines) around three main routes used by 70% of passengers. Ridership is increasing on most lines and the overall aim is to achieve a 10% growth in ridership across the network.
A SURVEY TRAM IN MELBOURNE
Twice a year at night, a specially equipped tram fitted with 3D lasers, sensors and cameras scours Yarra Trams, Melbourne’s tram network, which was built over a century ago. It’s also the world’s largest tram network, with 250 kilometres of double track. By collecting data on the condition of key infrastructure, such as tracks, wires and stops, the “survey tram” helps the teams schedule preventive and predictive maintenance tasks and better plan the necessary upgrades in the years ahead on each of the 24 lines.
