Alexander Dochy, Managing Director of OTG, will take up an advisory role in the integration process and transition to the new management team. His experience and involvement in the activities, combined with Keolis’ expertise in mobility, will make it possible to respond much better to the growing demand for quality services.
Present in Belgium since 2008, Keolis is the leading private operator of passenger road transport in Belgium. With this new acquisition, Keolis will have around 3,000 buses and coaches in the country being used for public transport, school services, tourism and airports, and will expand to around 3,500 employees. Keolis also currently provides taxi services in Liège (41 vehicles) and manages three travel agencies.
We are very proud to have been entrusted this mobility service and are fully committed to continuing its success story. Both companies will benefit from this merger as it will result in many operational synergies and increase the level of service for its passengers. Keolis aims to preserve the identity of Open Tours while sharing its standards as a pioneer of shared mobility and its expertise as an operator and integrator of all transport modes.
