Keolis has been present in Tours since 1975. In 2013, the Group redesigned the agglomeration’s public transport offer during the launch of the first tram line in the city. The goal: to better meet citizens’ mobility expectations, thanks to a multimodal network specifically tailored to their needs.
Luck played no part in Keolis’ February 2013 win of the operating contract for the bus network that serves Las Vegas’ major hotels and casinos. Proven global expertise in taking over and optimising existing transport networks was pivotal to the Group hitting the jackpot in America’s gambling capital.
Keolis has held the contract to operate and maintain Melbourne’s tram network, known as Yarra Trams, since 2009 when it became the world leader in tramway operation. In partnership with Downer, the leading provider of integrated services in Australia and New Zealand with over 100 years' rail experience, Keolis took on a major challenge: to modernise the largest and one of the oldest tram networks in the world. Keolis Downer, the Group’s local subsidiary, fulfils the Group’s ongoing commitment to offer the best possible service to its passengers.
In 2014, Keolis was chosen to operate Boston’s commuter rail network, the largest rail contract in North America to be assigned to a private operator. Since then, the Group has been working tirelessly to meet its goal of providing world-class service to the 127,000 passengers who travel on the network each day. An ambition founded on real-time information, committed teams, and a strong partnership with the local transport authority.
Keolis strives to meet passengers’ expectations, in all their diversity. For the past several years, the Group has carried out Keoscopie surveys to investigate the impact of national and regional socio-demographic changes on mobility trends. This innovative approach helps Keolis develop a customised mobility strategy, in line with citizens’ needs.
