"We are proud to have been chosen by Île-de-France Mobilités to improve everyday mobility in the west of Île de France. These two contracts, the first to be awarded to a new operator as part of opening up the bus networks of Paris' outer suburban ring to competition, illustrate the confidence that Île-de-France Mobilités has in Keolis Group. We are already working on the takeover of these networks to offer a high-quality transport service to local authorities and their residents. As the leading public transport operator in the Yvelines department, this is another major step forward for Keolis' development in the Paris Île-de-France region."
