Keolis wins electric bus line in Denmark

For this contract, which will run for ten years from August 2024, Keolis has purchased six new electric buses to replace vehicles previously powered by biogas. The depots in Frederikshavn and Aalborg, each with a capacity of ten buses, will be equipped with infrastructure enabling vehicles to be recharged simultaneously during the night, Keolis states.

A public transport operator in Denmark since 2000, Keolis employs as of today more than 1,400 staff and operates more than 400 buses in eight Danish cities, as well as two tram networks. In 2017, Keolis launched the country’s very first tramway in Aarhus, a 110 km long network with 51 stations. In Odense, the Group launched another tram network in 2021, which carries almost 10 million passengers a year.
