A 100% electric bus route
The local service in Paris’ 15th arrondissement - the most populous of the capital’s 20 arrondissements with 240,000 residents - connects the Pasteur Institute in the north to Georges Brassens park in the south via the town hall of the 15th arrondissement, schools and the multimedia library. Running seven days a week throughout the year, the 22-passenger capacity electric minibuses serving the route are accessible to people with reduced mobility and equipped with on-board defibrillators.
Dynamic, connected passenger information
Under the new contract which will start on 1 February 2020, Keolis will be responsible for deploying dynamic passenger information. This will include, among other things, e-paper passenger information points featuring electronic ink (very low energy consumption) which provide comprehensive passenger information in real time.
An app will allow passengers to identify the next services at the closest stop, and to visualise the approaching vehicle on a map. Passengers will also be able to subscribe to network alerts and messages received via the app's messaging system.
