Keolis, through its Chinese joint-venture Shanghai Keolis, has been awarded its first tram contract in China by Songjiang Tramway. The five-year contract covers the operations and maintenance of the tram network in the Songjiang District of Shanghai. The network, which connects to Shanghai’s existing metro Line 9, will open in two phases: the first one on 25 December 2018, and the second in mid-2019.
Keolis, which recently opened the first automated driverless metro line in Shanghai and won the contract to operate the automated metro at Shanghai International Airport, reinforces its presence in China and enhances its reputation as a pioneer and world leader in multimodal expertise.
04-03-2018 On 31 March 2018, a new fully automated metro line was added to the Shanghai metro network. Shanghai Keolis, a joint venture between the Shanghai Shentong Metro Group Co. Ltd. (51%) and Keolis Group (49%), started operating the Pujiang metro line, the first fully automated metro line in Shanghai. The line comprises 6.7km of double track and six elevated stations. The seven-year operations and maintenance contract was awarded to Shanghai Keolis two years ago.
Keolis’ joint-venture with RATP Dev and a Qatari group has been awarded the operations and maintenance contract of Qatar’s future public transport rail network, consisting of three automated metro lines and four tram lines. The win confirms the Group’s leading role in the global mass transit market for major metropolitan areas.
Keolis began the operation of the first of three automated metro lines in Hyderabad (India) on 29 November, 2017. The new contract highlights the Group’s expertise in mass transit, and confirms its place as the world leader in automated metro and the success of its international development strategy.
On 29 November, 2017, Keolis has begun its first passenger services on an initial 30km section of a new automated metro network in Hyderabad, India. Expected to carry 1.3 million passengers daily when fully operational, the Hyderabad metro will help to reduce road congestion and boost the local economy. This new metro service in Hyderabad reinforces Keolis’ international expertise and leadership in automated metro operations and maintenance.
