2016 confirmed Transdev’s potential
Transdev has posted a significant improvement in its core business, public transportation, which represents 85% of its activity. The year was marked by new contracts as well as the startup of highly visible operations. Among these, Transdev won the Artois Gohelle contract, which is the sixth largest urban transport area in France. Amsterdam region (AML) and Eindhoven contracts in the Netherlands have made the energy transition a reality, and Transdev is now the undisputed leader in electric buses operations in Europe. The good start of the Wellington contract in New Zealand further reinforces the group’s capability in rail operations. Meanwhile, the group won new contracts, notably in Germany (Ausburg and Leipzig) and the United States (Foothill, Valley Metro, Fulton, Anaheim and Phoenix), confirming its positive momentum.
In 2016, Transdev also acquired Urbis Park Services, a major player in car park management, which will help the group extend its range of solutions for public authorities.
2016 also saw a change in the group’s shareholding: Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations (CDC) increased its stake and now holds 70% of Transdev’s capital.
Transdev aims to consolidate its leadership position and accelerate the development of new mobility solutions
As part of this strategy, Transdev is participating in several large bids such as Lille, Caen, CDG Express, Doha and Casablanca.
In the context of the mobility revolution, Transdev is committed to playing a leading role. Convinced that the mobility of the future will be Personalized, Autonomous, Connected and Electric, Transdev aims to grow its Public Transit operations while developing new services for local authorities, always focusing on passenger needs and the quality of each aspect of the trip experience. In this context, Transdev recently signed a research partnership with the Renault Nissan alliance in the field of autonomous vehicles including real-life experiments in the Ile-de-France region and Rouen (Normandy).
