Keolis launches "Le Bus-Direct – Paris Aéroports"

05-12-2016. Cars Air France has been rebranded “Le Bus Direct – Paris Aéroports”, as part of its partnership with ADP Group. The Keolis subsidiary Aérolis has operated the airport bus service since 2008. This new premium, personalised service between Paris and its airports, reinforces Keolis’ position as a key public transport provider in the Paris region.

A service that sets itself appart from its competitors

"Le Bus Direct – Paris Aéroports" aims to offer a unique premium transport experience at an attractive price. New stops in Paris (Trocadéro, La Motte-Piquet Grenelle and Eiffel Tower), Wi-Fi and USB sockets at each seat, personalised welcome thanks to a bilingual team and even a luggage-handling service: everything has been thought of to provide the best possible customer experience. The Group expects to carry more than 2.5 million passengers in 2018, equivalent to a 20% increase in patronage.

With Le Bus Direct, we aim to satisfy our customers, demonstrate our expertise and illustrate our engagement as a public transport provider, supporting development in the greater Paris region, France's leading economic zone, with its constantly growing public transport needs.

Jean-Pierre Farandou, Executive Chairman, Keolis Group

"Le Bus Direct – Paris Aéroports" reflects the know-how and vision of Keolis, which is to contribute to the attractiveness of Paris and its surroundingarea. This type of service enables the Group to reinforce its status as a leading public transport operator in the greater Paris region.

Keolis employs 4,500 people across 25 subsidiaries in the region. Its 2,100 vehicles carry 85 million passengers every year. Building on the recent acquisition of Transports Daniel Meyer, a key greater Paris transport company, the launch of the "Le Bus Direct – Paris Aéroports" service allows Keolis to continue expanding its influence in the region. With its obvious experience in the field of multimodality, Keolis has already played a significant role in the design phase of the Grand Paris metro project.
