Keolis has been present in Tours since 1975. In 2013, the Group redesigned the agglomeration’s public transport offer during the launch of the first tram line in the city. The goal: to better meet citizens’ mobility expectations, thanks to a multimodal network specifically tailored to their needs.
Luck played no part in Keolis’ February 2013 win of the operating contract for the bus network that serves Las Vegas’ major hotels and casinos. Proven global expertise in taking over and optimising existing transport networks was pivotal to the Group hitting the jackpot in America’s gambling capital.
Keolis has held the contract to operate and maintain Melbourne’s tram network, known as Yarra Trams, since 2009 when it became the world leader in tramway operation. In partnership with Downer, the leading provider of integrated services in Australia and New Zealand with over 100 years' rail experience, Keolis took on a major challenge: to modernise the largest and one of the oldest tram networks in the world. Keolis Downer, the Group’s local subsidiary, fulfils the Group’s ongoing commitment to offer the best possible service to its passengers.
Keolis actively engages in partnerships with French and International start-ups to help improve its business agility. The Group capitalises on the innovative potential of start-ups to co-develop mobility solutions and services that help increase the attractiveness of public transport. The objective of these partnerships is to create new solutions that continuously simplify travel and mobility, as well as, contribute to innovation and the local digital economy.
The "tram of the future" is called Connectram. Led by Keolis Bordeaux Métrople, this pioneering initiative puts smart technology and connectivity at the heart of commuter travel. By offering a unique mobility experience, Connectram allows passengers to rediscover their everyday environment through an interactive immersion in the heart of the Bordeaux of tomorrow.
