Located in Déols, near Châteauroux in the department of Indre, the CNTS is a private site spanning 80 hectares, closed to traffic, which will be made available to Keolis as part of this partnership. This domain will give the Keolis Group the opportunity to train new operators, test new autonomous mobility solutions and grow its expertise in fleet management of “fully autonomous” vehicles without operators on board.
