Denmark: Keolis grows its bus operations in Northern Jutland

22nd December 2020
Keolis has been awarded a bus contract worth €190 million by Nordjyllands Trafikselskab (NT), the public transport authority of the Northern Jutland region in north-western Denmark. The contract will start in August 2021.

The Group will operate and maintain a total of 77 buses — including 67 fully fossil-free vehicles — and serve a population of 500,000 in the city of Aalborg and nearby towns.

This renewed partnership with NT expands Keolis’ 13-year presence in Northern Jutland and cements its status as one of Denmark’s leading bus operators. The Group operates around 500 buses in 10 Danish cities as well as the first light rail network of the country in Aarhus and will soon run a second light rail network in Odense.

"We are pleased to deliver high-quality, largely fossil-free transport to the people of Northern Jutland—and particularly proud of the trust the region’s public transport authority has placed in us by renewing our contract and adding a new one to the mix. A greener planet is everyone’s responsibility, and we will continue to play our part."

Bernard Tabary, CEO International, Keolis Group
