De Franse exploitant Transdev wint de concessie in het openbaar vervoer van de regio Amsterdam, vanaf december 2017 voor een periode van 15 jaar. Het is de eerste concessie in het openbaar vervoer waarbij zoveel elektrische bussen worden ingezet. Het is voor Transdev één van de belangrijkste contracten in Nederland waarvan de omzet is geraamd op 1,9 miljard euro. Transdev wordt daarmee de eerste exploitant in het openbaar vervoer, met nul-emissie in Europa. Transdev zal op middellange termijn 350 elektrische bussen in dit land exploiteren. Dit contract omvat ook verschillende gemeenten rond de hoofdstad en de verbindingen met de luchthaven van Schiphol, één van de drukste luchthavens van Europa met ongeveer 50 miljoen passagiers per jaar. Het bedrijf heeft als voornemen om van dit contract “ een laboratorium van de mobiliteit van de toekomst “te maken. In 2025 moeten alle nieuwe bussen in het openbaar vervoer vrij zijn van CO2-uitstoot, zo staat in een overeenkomst die staatssecretaris Dijksma in april 2016 tekende met de vervoersbedrijven. Nederland loopt in Europa voorop met de introductie van elektrische bussen.     Voor informatie, neem contact: Annick Chevalier Exportconsulente Industrie & Cleantech T : + 31 (0) 20 794 19 68 annick.chevalier@businessfrance.fr
