Transdev Canada announces the acquisition of Kunkel Bus Lines, a school bus company based in Ontario.
Present in Quebec and Ontario, Transdev Canada already has 2,500 employees operating in the transit, student, paratransit and medical transportation sectors. Transdev is also the operator of the future Hurontario light rail system in the Greater Toronto Area, as a member of the Mobilinx consortium, and of the future Ontario Line metro as a member of the Connect 6ix consortium.
With Kunkel Bus Lines, Transdev Canada expands its business with the addition of operations of a hundred school buses in the Hanover region of Ontario. This acquisition is part of the Transdev group's growth strategy in Canada, with the aim of offering a range of multi-modal services to serve communities, while remaining close to the specific needs of each territory.
We are very pleased to be able to count on the Kunkel Bus Lines team to continue our growth strategy in the world of student transportation in Ontario. Our shared values and common ambition to provide safe and innovative school services to many communities are a great asset to our entire team.
Arthur Nicolet, Chief Executive Officer of Transdev Canada
We are delighted to be building the future of the family business with a major partner like Transdev. We share the same focus on safety, service quality and employee well-being: we will go far together.
Scott Kunkel, General Manager of Kunkel Bus Lines
