Keolis wins the contract for the Senlis public transport network

6th September 2022

▪ The town of Senlis, in the department of Oise, awarded Keolis the operation and maintenance of its public transport network Transport Urbain Senlisien (TUS) which began on 1st September 2022, for a period of 6 years.
▪ Keolis Oise's main mission will be to improve the network's quality of service and to deploy dynamic passenger information.

Consisting of a fleet of ten vehicles (buses and minibuses), the TUS network, accessible to its passengers free of charge since 2000, is made up of five lines. It serves all the key locations in the town, which has a population of 15,000, including the bus station, the industrial zone, schools, the centre of town and the shopping centre.

Passenger information will be enhanced over the course of the contract, in particular through the creation of a timetable guide which passengers will be able to access online, as well as the roll-out of dynamic passenger information.

Four hybrid vehicles will be introduced within the next few months with the aim of contributing to the municipality’s energy transition. The public transport authority also plans to put four electric minibuses into service in 2023.
