Partnering with public stakeholders in the field of mobility

An institutional, socially and responsible mobility built with our partners
Keolis believes that the public transport profession can only be conceived via close relationships with all institutional bodies and stakeholders involved in the field of mobility. Thanks to partnerships with local, national or international stakeholder, the Group can better answer all current and future regional issues in the field of passenger transport.

Local transport authorities and local communities

In all countries and regions where Keolis operates, its subsidiaries cultivate partnerships with local authorities and their elected representatives. These partnerships are based on listening and transparency, and go far beyond a traditional customer-supplier relationship, enabling each local authority to develop an efficient mobility offer tailored to meet the challenges of their specific community.
