Transdev will be actively present at this event, both through its strong commitment to P.A.C.E. mobility (Personalized, Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Eco-friendly) and through its historical commitment to the Lyon metropolis.
Transdev will be exhibiting at EVS32 (Hall 6, stand E17) and will present its innovations to visitors and the media, including the i-Cristal model, the autonomous and shared electric shuttle co-developed by Transdev and Lohr, which will be deployed as part of two experiments this year in France (Rouen, Paris-Saclay). Transdev will also exhibit on its stand a Bolloré Bluebus mini electric bus (6m), with a capacity of 22 passengers and a range of 130 km, allowing a maximum speed of 50 km/h, and using LMP (Lithium Metal Polymer) batteries of French origin.
On Monday, May 20 at 10:30 am, Transdev will inaugurate on its stand, in partnership with SYTRAL (Syndicat Mixte des transports pour le Rhône et l’agglomération lyonnaise), the experimentation of this Bolloré Bluebus urban electric shuttle in the City of Tarare in presence of Fouziya BOUZERDA, President of SYTRAL and Thierry MALLET, Chairman and CEO of the Transdev Group.
Transdev will also be represented at the round table on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 17:00 to 18:30 on the theme “Electric heavy transport”, with Anne de Bagneux, Director of Strategy and Transformation and member of the Transdev Group Executive Committee, as guest speaker.
Transdev and electric mobility: an international commitment
Transdev is at the forefront of the energy transition, already a reality in its field of expertise thanks to an offer of eco-friendly solutions for electric mobility. Transdev currently operates more than 600 buses (with more than 700 planned by the end of 2019) and electric minibuses in service at 27 sites in seven countries. With the Amsterdam and Eindhoven networks, two of the most modern and cleanest in the world, Transdev is the leading European operator of “zero emission” electric buses. At the end of 2019, the French fleet of Transdev electric vehicles will consist of 200 vehicles of all formats (cars, minibuses, buses, trolleybuses, coaches, etc.).
In the summer of 2019, Transdev plans to open two electric bus lines (Valence Romans Déplacements, Southern PACA Region). In addition, the Group will put into service in France the very first zero emission fuel cell & hydrogen electric bus line in the Lens metropolitan area. Another project of this type will be launched later in Auxerre, in addition to two other projects in the Netherlands.
