Keolis begins operating alternative energy double-decker buses in Sweden

13th December 2021

On 12 December 2021, Keolis, in close cooperation with Swedish public transport authority Västtrafik, started operating the commuter bus service between the cities of Gothenburg and Borås in the west of Sweden.

As part of this 10½-year contract, 22 alternative energy double-decker buses will serve 1.3 million passengers per year on a network that spans over 65km - a first for Keolis in Sweden.

• With this new milestone, the Group reinforces its presence in Sweden, where it operates 1,600 fossil-free buses throughout the country.

“We are delighted to be entrusted with the operation of this new contract for double-decker commuter buses in Sweden, the first of its kind for Keolis, thereby continuing our sustainable cooperation with Västtrafik in yet another network. We are looking forward to providing a mobility offer that is both clean and safe and playing our role in the energy transition to enhance the everyday life of Swedish residents.”
