Norway Launch of a large 100% fossil-free bus network in Bergen to reduce CO2 emissions by 85%

30th November 2020
On 1 December 2020, Keolis began operating a new fossil-free bus network in Bergen, providing city residents and visitors with a sustainable shared mobility solution under a contract with public transport authority (PTA) Skyss.

The city’s fleet of 138 buses—including 102 electric vehicles—now runs on 100% renewable energy, showcasing Keolis’s expertise in zero-emission and electric-powered mobility. Keolis currently operates 3,800 sustainable buses worldwide.
The launch not only grows Keolis’ footprint in Norway, where it has run Bergen’s light rail system for the past 10 years, but also reinforces Keolis’ portfolio of multimodal operations around the world including existing networks in France, the Netherlands, Australia and the US.

"We are delighted with our partnership with Skyss, and pleased that Keolis is able to help make sustainable infrastructure and sustainable communities a reality for the people of Bergen. Working with the PTA, we will focus on rebuilding passenger trust in the wake of the pandemic, and welcoming people back for safe, comfortable, green journeys aboard this brand-new fleet."

Bernard Tabary, CEO International, Keolis Group
