Keolis has been awarded a new contract to operate a commuter bus service between Gothenburg and Boras, covering 65km. The fossil-free, biodiesel double-deck buses will provide a service to 1.3 million passengers every year. With this new contract, the Group reinforces its presence in Sweden, where it operates 1,700 fossil-free buses throughout the country
MBTA, the public agency responsible for operating most public transportation services in Greater Boston, Massachusetts, has awarded Keolis, its commuter rail operating partner, a $30 million contract to carry out Phases 2 and 3 of the project to install double track on the Franklin line, following the completion of Phase 1 in December.
On 20 November 2019, at the Salon des Maires exhibition, Enedis and Keolis sign a partnership intended to share their respective expertise to support public transport authorities wishing to convert their bus fleets to electric buses. The partnership will make it possible to innovate and optimise electric bus charging systems and facilitate their integration into the public electricity distribution network, managed by Enedis.
In Rennes (France), Keolis, which already operates two Navya electric autonomous shuttles in the University of Rennes, further pursues its trials with two new shuttles made by EasyMile. On the same occasion, Easymile inaugurates its new-generation shuttle. In Lyon (France), the Group has reached a new milestone in autonomous vehicle deployment with the entry into service of two new Navya automated shuttles fully integrated into traffic, a first in the country. In Newcastle (Australia), Keolis will start to operate autonomous shuttles running on public roads by the end of the year.In Gothenburg (Sweden), in partnership with Volvo, Keolis unveiled a 12-metre long electric bus in its depot.
In September 2019, we related how Keolis' Innovation and Data Club Workshop brought together colleagues from more than 20 subsidiaries to discuss the challenges of tomorrow's mobility. Take a look back at the workshop with the video available on Keosphere.
