MULTIMODALITY AT KEOLIS
At Keolis, we believe that an effective public transport plan is based on the complementarity of high-capacity modes – serving the densest zones along major transport arteries – and agile modes, interconnecting the rest of the region to absorb the weaker transport flows. We define ourselves as the benchmark integrator for all types of mobility.
OUR EXPERTISE: KNOWING HOW TO INTEGRATE AND COMBINE ALL TRANSPORT MODES
Our ability to meet the mobility needs of cities through interconnecting modes rests on the expert operation of urban mobility services by our own teams, as well as our capacity to integrate the solutions of others. For example: LeCab, the company for private-driver services supplementing the network of transport on-demand at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, or VIA, which is supporting the Group in deploying real-time, on-demand shared transport services in Sydney and Newcastle. The same goes for the start-up Instant System, whose dynamic ridesharing solutions are currently deployed in about ten networks, and Navya, whose autonomous electric shuttles are running in Lyon and Las Vegas.
Bordeaux: a showcase for multimodality
With a 10% growth in both ridership and passenger revenue, 2018 proved to be an excellent vintage for the Greater Bordeaux transport network. Transport Bordeaux Métropole (TBM) is a strong intermodal network, with an extensive array of transport modes that provide residents with maximum territorial coverage: trams, buses and bus rapid transit lines, river shuttles, a bikeshare scheme and park-and-ride (P+R) facilities.
n 2018, two new P+R facilities opened, certain bus services were reinforced, and 15 new trams were acquired. In addition, a new bikeshare model was unveiled at the end of 2018 featuring 1,000 new electric bikes to be deployed in the first half of 2019, representing more than half of the fleet. This network expansion and an increase in transport services led to TBM being awarded the French industry accolade Pass d’Or by the French trade magazine Ville
ACCLAIMED EXPERTISE IN FRANCE AND ABROAD
- In Dijon, where in 2017 the Dijon Metropole decided to partner with Keolis in an unprecedented multimodal approach: to develop a global mobility plan integrating public transport (bus and tram), parking and bike share services. Read more (link to news)
- In Newcastle, Australia, and for the first time outside France, a city has assigned a single operator, Keolis, the task of operating all of its transport modes (buses, ferries and soon the tram), as well as trialling real-time, on-demand transport services. Read more (link to news)
- In Besançon, where we will soon be deploying – in addition to the bus, tram and bike –a ridesharing service, as well as agile, dynamic transport solutions to improve services to key destinations.
