Our three priorities
Irrespective of network size (from 10 to 600 buses), our focus is on:
- developing an offer adapted to our clients and travellers;
- guaranteeing a service of quality;
- developing sustainable solutions designed to limit the environmental impact.
Facilitating transport: coherent, legible and efficient networks
We constantly strive to improve our solutions thanks to the work carried out based on our knowledge of the concrete needs of travellers, companies and local authorities. As such, we optimise our networks in accordance with real passenger flows, the rhythms of people’s lives and passenger usages. Our offer is therefore coherent and intuitive for travellers so as to facilitate their mobility and provide a better travel experience. We also seek maximum efficiency to meet the needs of local authorities with reasoned means.
Increased traveller benefits to promote recourse to public transport
- Reduced travelling time for the simplest transfers
- Bus services combined with other modes of transport (tramway, bicycle, walking, etc.)
- Timetables designed to make connections smooth, simple and practical
- Traveller applications providing real-time information and an itinerary calculator
Quality and safety requirements
Our global fleet of 24,600 buses across 18 countries symbolises the spirit of Transdev with regard to our clients and travellers. We are particularly demanding with regard to:
- ensuring quality of service: safety, punctuality, comfort;
- deploying and installing a culture of safety among our employees;
- driver training;
- our daily involvement in client relations.
Portfolio of Bus servicesDownload
We are the European leader in zero-emission buses
The ecological footprint of buses is an obvious and constant preoccupation. With a current fleet of 1400 fully electric buses, we rank number 1 in zero-emission mobility in Europe.
Within the Living Lab, we regularly bring together a group of electro-mobility experts to help us improve and develop our future solutions.
Transdev currently has a fleet of 62 large-capacity electric buses which use ground-breaking technologies for energy storage and recharge.
Reims: a customized bus service
After carrying out studies and big data mining, we optimised the Citura bus network in Reims so that it would be able to meet the precise needs of the population by ensuring a more efficient service for the major transport hubs. Designed to simplify recourse to local transport, this made-to-measure solution included moving the terminus closer to the city’s department stores, installing mobile ticket dispensers in passageways (Flycase), and introducing the possibility of post-payment, etc.
Amsterdam: the largest electric bus fleet in Europe
In the region of Amsterdam, we have just signed a 15-year concession to operate the largest electric bus fleet in Europe. 90% of the fleet will be electric by 2021 and powered by renewable energies. Some will use an innovative system of mixed recharge making them the cleanest and most modern buses in the world.
Sydney: the traveller at the centre of the network
Since 1999, we have been assisting the city and region of Sydney (Australia) to develop a reliable and efficient bus network offering the best possible traveller experience. With a radical drop in the number of incidents from 183 to 0 in three years, this network offers a service of excellence based on in-depth client knowledge and a flexible and intuitive ticket system: efforts that are greatly appreciated by the customers.
Did you know?
In our constant quest to find new innovations to reduce our environmental impact, we carried out tests in Brittany (France) on a car powered by natural gas (NGV) and with enough autonomy to run two days without needing to recharge.
The Result? Reduction of 95% in fine participle emissions, of 50% in sound, of 30%-50% in costs and more comfortable smoother drive for passengers. The aim of the pilot test is to use NGVs on all of our CAT29 lines.
