The public transport authority of Bergen (Skyss) awarded the Keolis’ subsidiary in Norway a €333M contract to operate a fleet of 136 mainly electric buses that will run on 100% renewable energy. In total, the whole fleet is expected to run a total of 5.7 million kilometres and carry 17 million passengers annually. With this new contract, that last 9.5 years starting from December 1, 2020, Keolis reinforces its presence in Norway, where it already operates the Bergen light rail network.

Keolis has been present in Norway since 2010 in the light rail network which is 20 kilometres long and counts 28 trams. The contract was recently renewed for another eight years and now includes maintenance in addition to operations. The success of this light rail network has encouraged the public transport authority to develop plans for further expansions. Between 12 and 14 new trams will be added to the network.

In addition to the 100% fossil free buses in Bergen, Keolis is leading several electro-mobility projects in France and internationally (Sweden, The Netherlands, United States, Canada).
