On 27 June 2021, Keolis’ subsidiary in Denmark, Keolis Danmark began operating and maintaining the Greater Copenhagen region’s bus network. The network's fleet of 59 buses features 42 electric buses that will save more than 4,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. This launch comes after the recent commissioning of 20 fully electric buses which began running on the Odense network in May 2021.
After the Safety Week, which was held from 14 to 18 June 2021, Keolis has honored innovative actions developed in the past months by its subsidiaries to improve the health, safety and security of its passengers and collaborators. Beyond these prices rewarding the teams, this first-of-its-kind in the Group enables the company to highlight and share good practices so they can be used in the networks in the 15 countries where Keolis is present.
This Thursday, June 17, the new board of directors of the UTP unanimously elected Marie-Ange Debon as its President. The Chairwoman and Group Chief Executive Officer of Keolis succeeds Thierry Mallet.
From 14 to 18 June 2021, Keolis subsidiaries around the world are showcasing the Group’s commitment to ensuring the health, safety and security of its staff, passengers and the public.
On 28 May 2021, Keolis Downer, Keolis’ Australian subsidiary, won an 8-year contract to operate and maintain 406 buses in Greater Sydney.
The contract was awarded by Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), the Public Transport Authority (PTA) for the state of New South Wales and is set to start on 31 October 2021. It is the first time this network will be managed by a private operator.
To improve the passenger experience and boost ridership, Keolis Downer has committed to enhance transport services and facilitate the network’s energy transition by introducing 125 electric buses by 2030.
Keolis has extensive energy transition expertise acquired in Europe and North America, and over 10 years of experience in Australia, where it is stepping up its presence in the country. Both will be key to the project’s success.
