Low or irregular passenger flows, sparsely populated zones, areas with few businesses or tourist attractions, off-peak periods... Because some regions can't provide themselves with a regular mobility service, Keolis provides passengers with flexible, customised on-demand transport solutions.
Keolis and on-demand transport: a customied transport service
Mobility solutions suited to the requirements of every community
Our teams partner with each public transport authority to design the solution that best suits their local needs. For this, we combine three forms of expertise:
Diversified on-demand transport services. We offer a wide range of options depending on the geographical nature and/or timetable of the service to be provided. These options can be combined and include itineraries and fixed timetables activated on request, a service from one point to another in a given zone, Transport for people with reduced mobility (TPRM).
Specific operating models. We have a wide range of in-house or subcontracted operating models to meet every need at the best cost, including buses, minibuses, use of TPRM vehicles, private hire cars, taxis and ridesharing.
Adapted technology. We offer a variety of technologies to operate on-demand mobility services, process bookings and keep travellers informed.
A simple, intuitive mobility experience for all passengers
Our on-demand transport solutions offer great flexibility to passengers and a high level of information to ensure peace of mind throughout their journey. They can book, change or cancel their journey by contacting an adviser by phone, online or with a mobile app. They receive confirmation of their booking and track the arrival of their vehicle remotely and in real time.
