Escalating fuel prices, population growth and worsening traffic congestion are increasingly causing city planners to look toward integrated rail services for solutions.
Transdev operates nearly 800 trains and 660 light rail trains around the world every day. We contribute with experience to the planning, construction, operation, and maintenance of rail systems that have significantly improved the quality of life and daily mobility.
The next few years will be decisive for the development of transportation infrastructures in Canada. And Transdev Canada is already one of the key players in these transformations in the countrysolutions for users.
Our expertise in railway operations and maintenance
We have extensive experience with public‑private partnerships in Canada and around the world as a service or technical assistance company.
Our cross-functional team provides support throughout the project life cycle, including preparation for operations: design review, testing and commissioning, etc.
Our teams are proud to provide our Canadian clients with our world-renowned expertise in improving the quality of life of users and new forms of mobility.
Today, the economic constraints faced by local authorities in developing these large-scale projects make the choice of partner operator crucial.
Thanks to innovative public-private partnerships, Transdev has been able to enrich its proposal with balanced and efficient contractual schemes, in order to develop the right solutions for the economic development of each region. We are one of the best placed operators to support local authorities in a public-private partnership strategy that will enable them to obtain the best guarantees on the operation and maintenance aspects from the very first stages of the project design.
