17-12-2018 On 17 December 2018, Keolis launched an electric autonomous shuttle service on the university campus of Lille (Cité Scientifique) at Villeneuve d’Ascq. Globally, it is the fourth city where the Group provides this innovative mode of transport at within a university environment. In Rennes, France, the autonomous shuttles serving the university have been quickly adopted, within three weeks of the start of the operation the services have been used by nearly 3,000 people, a record in usage for this new mode of transport. Keolis is the only public transport operator in France to offer this mobility solution on university campuses. The results of the trials prove the real need for autonomous shuttles on university sites, a service for which Keolis intends to accelerate deployment.
Keolife was designed and implemented to structure the Group’s strategy of continuous improvement. Based on proven fundamentals, Keolife provides a shared framework for all Keolis’ subsidiaries to improve their performance for the benefit of passengers and public transport authorities alike.
