Keolis awarded a new bus contract in Sweden

3 décembre 2019
Keolis has been awarded a new contract to operate a commuter bus service between Gothenburg and Borås, 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.

On 28 November 2019, Västtrafik, the Swedish public transport authority, awarded Keolis Sverige, the Keolis Group’s subsidiary in Sweden, a new contract to operate the commuter bus service between Gothenburg and Borås, two large cities in the west of the country. The 10½-year contract, due to start in December 2020, reinforces the Group’s presence in Sweden where it has been based since 2003 and operates 1,700 fossil-free buses.

We are very pleased with the trust placed in us by Västtrafik, with whom we cooperate in other cities in the country,” says Arnaud Van Troeyen, Deputy CEO International at Keolis. “We look forward to running this new fossil-free bus commuter service, drawing on our experience with double deck buses in France, Belgium and the US to provide passengers with a shared, comfortable and environmentally-friendly commuting experience.
