In September 2019, we related how Keolis' Innovation and Data Club Workshop brought together colleagues from more than 20 subsidiaries to discuss the challenges of tomorrow's mobility. Take a look back at the workshop with the video available on Keosphere.
Keolis and Volvo demonstrated a 12-metre long electric bus at the Keolis depot in Gothenburg, Sweden, able to park, wash and charge itself completely autonomously.
Kisio, together with Google Maps and MobilityData, publishes open mobility datasets and a methodological handbook to represent the interiors of transit stations and improve traveler experiences in trip planning applications. This work results in better journey plans for everyone, including people with mobility needs. On the occasion of the MobilityData Summit taking place on October 17th and 18th at the Centre for Social Innovation in New York City, Kisio and MobilityData are pleased to announce a collaboration with Google Maps on the project “Go Deeper Paris”.
Keolis’ Australian subsidiary, Keolis Downer, has started operating a new real-time on-demand transport service in Newcastle, as part of its Smart City Program. This new service builds on the success of existing on-demand services in Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, where ridership continues to grow by over 5% each month. It provides the local community and visitors a better access to public transport and aims to shift from private cars to public transport
The group also won four other prizes, as well as being highly commended in five categories for its operations in the UK, France and Denmark
