Keolis Corporate Responsibility and Strategy

The firm is expanding into new markets (through public calls for tenders in France and worldwide) and launching innovative initiatives in mobility.

Autonomous Shuttles and Automated Metro Systems

The company's main innovations in public transport operations are driverless shuttles and automated metro systems:

  • Public transport services by self-driving shuttle (through a partnership with Navya, a French manufacturer of self-driving shuttles), which started in September 2016 in Lyon. Keolis currently runs self-driving shuttle services in France and worldwide, particularly in La Défense and Las Vegas.
  • Automated metro systems in Shanghai and Hyderabad.

Keolis Digital Services

Keolis offers trip planning, booking and payment services:

  • The launch in 2015 of the Plan Book Ticket digital app, which combines “plan” features to organize trips, “book” features to reserve them and “ticket” features to obtain and validate a ticket directly using a smartphone
  • The Launch in 2018 of an open payment solution on the Dijon transport network (bank cards can now be used as tickets)
  • The introduction of the HelloGo app, which enables passengers to plan, reserve and purchase their tickets for all modes of transport in Utrecht
