The Business Case of Artois Gohelle : BHNS scheme, SAFRA hydrogen bus and BEI financing
To support public transport authorities in the development of digital solutions for its networks, Keolis, a worldwide mobility player, offers diverse mobility forms that are developed with digital platforms for first and last mile bus solutions like transport on demand (TOD). The goal is to share this approach and to talk about the smart worldwide bus solutions that arise when Keolis is involved. The technology Keolis use is leveraged to deliver a high quality service in response to the mobility demands of a modern society, supporting service provision in line with customer need, where and when desired, For example our recent TOD 'Keoride' in Newcastle, Australia, and Bordeaux that uses technology-enabled minibuses running on flexible routes to offer a convenient, responsive, accessible, personalised transport experience – complementing existing public transport options.Digital mobility solutions create a smart mobility world while still co-existing with classical forms of transport: Integrated and operating as a symbiosis. First and last mile solutions like transport on demand are therefore part of Keolis’ offer worldwide, like in France, Netherlands and Australia. The technology Keolis uses is leveraged to deliver a high quality service in response to the mobility demands of a modern society, supporting service provision in line with customer need, where and when desired, and with an ease of use and reliability which will drive further demand. Today’s mobility is defined by these smart transport solutions and thus becoming part of everyday (commuters) life. In fact when Keolis is involved, beautiful integrated on demand solutions arise which we would like to share.
