Keolis has a long, great history in Florida and is proud of the many successes that have occurred and continue to occur here on a daily basis.
The need for quality public transportation is on the rise in Florida and the Keolis team has played an integral role in designing and developing new systems in many communities across the state. For example, the Keolis team in Collier County worked with government officials in designing and developing the new Collier Area Transit Intermodal Transfer Station, assisting Collier County government officials with their system route design and serving as a strategic partner in a comprehensive operations analysis to improve system efficiencies.
The Keolis team also measures success through our ability to be more cost-effective than other transit operators, all while “Thinking Like A Passenger” and maintaining extremely high levels of customer service. For example, Keolis took over the shuttle contract for the Fort Lauderdale airport in May 2008. At the time of transition, the cost per passenger was $3.70. The Keolis team was able to reduce this cost to $1.17 per passenger in a short period of time and still continues to improve this number. On that same contract, passenger counts are up 16% in 2012, nearly 21% since contract inception. This combined with more efficient maintenance programs resulted in a client savings of more than $7.1M with Keolis at the helm.
While Keolis operates efficiently, we also operate safely. Recent airport and station improvements at operations in Florida gave Keolis the opportunity to showcase our superior safety training and safety implementation practices. All Keolis staff are live-trained in emergency situations to also be better prepared in the event of a true crisis situation.
