10-year, €900m spend replacing diesel with fully-electric buses

Global shared mobility group Keolis has been awarded a major new contract to modernise and operate public transport in the Dutch provinces of Overijssel, Flevoland and Gelderland.
The 10-year, €900 million contract will involve the group replacing existing diesel buses with 300 fully-electric alternatives. This will begin as early as 2020.

The 300 electric buses will run on the network that includes around 140 lines and serves 53 stations. Between them they will carry around 17 million passengers a year.
