Dedicated lane public transport

Summary:

In 2013, over half the planet’s population is living in cities. In 2030, three out of four people will be urban dwellers. Towns occupy 3% of the globe’s surface but consume 75% of its energy resources. In order to offer everyone the means of traveling and working in cities, how can these resources be developed harmoniously? How can we reconcile irrepressible development with an equitable sharing of space? How can we effectively manage increasing population flows while preserving a pleasant and healthy living environment in cities? How can we make urban transport pleasant and easy to use while demanding that it perform a social role?
There are three main challenges for the city of the future:First, recognizing that energy is going to become expensive; Second, taking account of environmental constraints and reducing the ecological footprint of cities;
And third, improving social cohesion, without which cities cannot exist.
Given these three factors,  Transdev offers solutions for efficient and integrated transportation systems, connecting people with their communities and regions.
A subsidiary of Caisse des Dépôts, Transdev generates revenues of 7.9 billion euros. The company is present in 21 countries and employs 95,000 people around the world. Transdev operates 13 modes of transportation, including 23 light rail networks.  
Transdev works alongside local authorities as an architect of transportation policies. 
Through the significant experience gained across extremely varied contexts, Transdev leverages and applies its expertise to specific projects, adapted to meet local needs.
Transdev’s strength is its overall control of large-scale, dedicated-site projects, from design through all intermediary phases to operation.
With its complementary geographic footprint, expertise and service offerings, Transdev offersa unique response. Its extensive experience in blending public and private interests enables Transdev to find the answers that simultaneously meet the specific needs of communities and individuals. Transdev’s employees intimately understand the needs of the people and communities they serve, sharing a passion for imagining, creating and delivering the most innovative solutions.
A pioneer with local elected representatives in the development of urban transport, Transdev was the driving force behind the comeback of a completely modernized version of light rail in many cities. Transdev also invented Busway, a new bus rapid transit concept, which combines the qualities of the light rail with the ease of use of the bus. Two solutions with similar features, proposed to local authorities on the basis of several criteria: transport capacities, investment costs, implementation times and the program’s progressiveness.
On board, passengers benefit from an incomparable level of service… Operating on a dedicated lane, the network maintains a constant pace with frequent and regular service: passengers experience no delays…

A socially inclusive company, Transdev develops and implements the “street level” concept, making each mode of transport accessible to all. With the many specific facilities available, mobility impaired people are able to use the network without difficulty…  

Tramway and BRT offer passengers a peaceful and safe way to travel…Stops are easily identifiable with a high level of equipment and ergonomic urban fixtures. Light rail and bus rapid transit are becoming a symbol of the completely successful integration of transportation in the heart of the city.

A responsible company, Transdev has a long history of involvement in urban development. Whatever the solution used, the economic efficiency of the dedicated lane transit system allows us to control usage costs and contain the project’s ecological impact. Respecting the environment also means consuming less energy, with clean vehicles. It also means reducing emissions of pollutants by operating vehicles at regular speeds, facilitated by priority at crossroads and flexible and controlled driving.

Ensuring inter-modality means above all listening to the needs of passengers.The objective: to simplify travel while integrating various complementary modes of transportation.Making the city a center for meeting and exchange, where travel can flow perfectly: this is the ultimate ambition of Transdev, the public transportation operator.With this overall vision of dedicated-lane transportation, Transdev is a true architect of urban mobility, performing a strategic role that combines economic, societal and environmental considerations.
