Our priority: promoting the use of public transportation

Building sustainable mobility means, first and foremost, convincing as many people as possible to choose public transportation. To do this, our first mission is to offer a quality service, one that is both optimised and efficient in order to increase ridership.

Electric and hybrid mobility: accelerating deployment

Electric buses in Eindhoven and around Paris, tramways in Barcelona and in Dublin, electric minibuses in La Rochelle or Amsterdam, hybrid taxis, etc.: we put environmentally friendly public transportation at the service of the public authorities.

 

Since 2016, we have been supporting the Amsterdam region in the Netherlands in its energy transition program, and today we are the European leader in zero emission mobility.

Our tramways also contribute to improving the environmental performance of public transportation. In Mulhouse, France, in partnership with EDF, the electricity supply of the tram-train comes exclusively from renewable sources.

In Tenerife, Spain, the tram maintenance depot produces 900kW/h of solar and wind energy.

Did you know?

In La Rochelle, France, we are partners in the YéloH2 project, a fuel cell battery life extension experiment for maritime passenger ships. It is one of the first French sea buses to be equipped and will help determine whether hydrogen technology can be used in the marine environment.

In November 2014, we participated in the tests of the first electric feeding bus (in France) which connects the two terminals of the Nice airport. Its distinctive feature: the WATT ultra-fast electric charging system, which supplies the bus at each stop as passengers exit and enter the bus. After the charging operation is completed, the bus has a range of 800 meters, allowing it to reach the next stop.

 

Within our Electric Bus Living Lab, we help public authorities identify the electromobility solutions best suited to their needs. Our objective? Raise awareness and encourage communities to transform their networks for a zero emission future.

Amsterdam: on the road to zero emissions

To meet the demand of the Amsterdam region to operate a zero emission fleet, we opted for the deployment of electric buses. To ensure continuous service, these buses are recharged at the end of the line using a fast charge system and are fully charged at night. An additional benefit? The electricity used comes from renewable energies. With Amsterdam, we are the first zero emission mobility operator in Europe!

Dublin: LUAS, an exemplary network

In Dublin, we have been supporting the city since 2014 to build a public transportation network with a low environmental impact. Raising awareness of travellers about CO2 savings, campaigns to save energy and natural resources, funding of research, etc. Our efforts have received multiple awards and are recognised by the ISO 14001 certification for the excellence of our environmental management.

Nantes: a model for the energy transition

The city of Nantes is a pioneer in the implementation of clean transportation in France. We support it in the maintenance of its network by promoting the use of public transportation and the development of innovative solutions: river shuttle using hydrogen technology and the deployment in September 2018 of 100% electric bi-articulated buses. The Result? In Nantes, diesel vehicles represent today a small percentage of the bus fleet!
