Transdev in the UK

The UK is a key market for Transdev as it develops globally.

The group is a major London bus operator with London United and London Sovereign, and also owns Bournemouth Transport Ltd trading under the name "Yellow Buses".

In north and west Yorkshire and Lancashire, Transdev owns the Blazefield Group providing high quality bus services through its five subsidiary companies. In Nottingham, Transdev is a shareholding partner with the Council in Nottingham City Transport (NCT). As part of Arrow, the concessionaire company that designed and built Nottingham Express Transit, Transdev operates this tram system in partnership with NCT.

Global Expertise
A key strength of Transdev is its international experience, operating 100 networks in more than 70 cities worldwide.

Transdev is the recognised world leader in tram services. We currently operate 11 tram networks with over 1,000 trams, in the UK, France, Australia, Spain and Portugal.

Our extensive bus and coach networks operate in the UK, France, Netherlands, Canada, Italy, Portugal and Australia. They also include specialist services such as transport at high altitude ski resorts and airport ground transport.

Transdev's transport expertise extends into heavy rail through our EuRailCo partnership with the Paris Metro operator RATP. EuRailCo entered the German rail market when it took a majority stake in Trans Regio, a passenger train operator.

Transdev's well-established international reputation for delivering efficient and safe transport services provides invaluable experience and expertise for the group's UK operations.

Forward Together
The key element of Transdev's development is in establishing quality public-private partnerships by developing a close working relationship right from the start of any project. In France Transdev is a leader in the field of "mixed equity" companies, where we hold partnership shareholdings with local authorities in the local transport network. Transdev combines global experience with local authorities' knowledge to ensure that the solutions match the needs of the local community.

Transdev is committed to achieving high quality services for all passengers around the world.
