Our CSR commitments
Our line of business, mobility, obliges us and commits us to future generations on three levels: fighting against global warming, committing to regional development, mobilizing employees.
Engaged in the energy and ecological transition
In Canada, as everywhere else, we are convinced of the need to work together in the fight against global warming.
On this commitment, Transdev Canada is now the largest private operator of electric school buses in North America, with a total of 84 vehicles to date.
At Transdev Canada, we have chosen to make a specific energy transition for school transportation in Quebec because of its dynamic local ecosystem and the fact that the energy produced locally is mostly hydroelectric, and therefore among the cleanest in the world. The implementation of these vehicles promises to reduce pollution by 99% compared to diesel-powered vehicles.
It also highlights our commitment to ensuring greener tomorrows for future generations, today's passengers of our yellow buses.
We are convinced that we must continue to go farther: we are constantly innovating to limit the impact of transport on the environment through the use of alternative energies to “fossil fuels” and reduce our carbon footprint. We develop transport systems that integrate increasing numbers of clean vehicles running on “green” energies (NGV, hybrid, hydrogen or electric buses). These efforts have helped make us the number one European operator of zero emission mobility.

Living Lab Electric Bus
To experiment with environmentally friendly transportation solutions, we created the Living Lab Electric Bus which brings together operators, electromobility experts and local authorities.
It is a common point of exchange and sharing, focused on prospective topics related to the ecological transition. The project has led to the development of many concrete initiatives, making Transdev a recognized expert of new mobility solutions with our pilot communities.
The Living Lab has held events in Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, and in Nice and Enghien-les-Bains in France.
Committed to working closely with regions
Thanks to our multi-modal mobility solutions, we accompany our passengers as far as they want to go. We are actively involved in opening up of certain mobility deserts. It is our commitment to the harmonious development of regions: offering custom designed solutions that fit the specific needs of local populations.
Being close to everyone’s needs also means transporting the most vulnerable populations. Attentive to the inclusion of everyone and to our role as a promoter of social cohesion, we strive to make our services as accessible as possible. We also promote these values of social inclusion as a local employer.
Integrated in the economic fabric of the regions, we are committed to creating links with our partners and suppliers based on our ethics and our values of transparency, in compliance with labour laws.
Did you know?
Since 2015, we have been working on a pilot initiative on the positive economy, and participate in the Positive Economy Forum, which takes place every year in Le Havre. We are the only one among our competitors to calculate the positivity index of our Group with our partner Positive Economy Advocacy.
Engaged every day
Passionate about their profession, engaged every day with passengers and regions, our employees are convinced that they can all participate in the creation of social bonds and help transform mobility. True heroes of daily life, our drivers offer a service that is close to the passengers, animated by a human touch and a spirit of public service.
Attracting and retaining talent and maintaining and increasing the commitment of new hires is fundamental to our sustainable growth. We have three convictions in regard to human resources: collaboration, dialogue and employee development.
In a rapidly changing mobility sector, we make managerial innovation a priority: integration of employees (Trans’Days), partnerships with universities and think tanks.
Present in 17 countries on 5 continents, we are resolutely committed to fighting discrimination and increasing diversity: we resemble all of our customers, in order to better serve them.
Energy transition, anchoring in the regions, employee commitment: three axes on which our commitment for sustainable development is built today
