As of today, February 21, 2022 Transdev started operating the regional bus services in the region of Östergötland in the eastern part of the country covereing the cities of Norrköping, Söderköping and Valdemarsvik on behalf of the regional public transit authority Östgötatrafiken.

A new development is that Transdev introduces 32 new fossil-free bogie buses and double-deckers that will offer better comfort for passengers. The contract is for eleven years and covers the Norrköping-Söderköping-Valdemarsvik, as well as the rural area of Valdemarsvik.

 

We look forward to welcoming passengers on board our new buses. Especially now that the restrictions have been lifted and we can all travel as normal again. We have a really good local knowledge and have been running public transport in Norrköping and Finspång for several years now. We will continue to do our best to ensure that new and old customers choose to travel in a sustainable way.
