Our Core Beliefs

The Transdev family of employees operates and manages quality transportation that makes cities and communities better places to live.

Across the world in 19 countries on five continents, our workforce of 83,000 women and men share a common sense of purpose. Our passengers and clients trust and rely on us every day to provide safe, reliable and cost-effective transportation services. This isn’t just a responsibility, it’s our civic duty.
Our uncompromising commitment to safety, our passion for delivering excellent service and cost-savings, our values and integrity both as employees and as a corporation: these are the inherent traits that define Transdev.
Around the world, we share a common set of Core Beliefs. They are made up of our Credo (Uncompromising Safety), Ethics, Values, and our Corporate Social Responsibility. These elements unify us as Transdev colleagues and form the foundation of our culture and our commitments to clients, customers and employees. These guiding principles aren’t relegated to a brochure that gathers dust on top of a cabinet; we strive to live our core beliefs every day and champion employees who reflect our beliefs in thought and in action.

Our Credo: Uncompromising Safety

Safety is our highest priority and our deepest conviction. At Transdev, caring for the safety of our employees and passengers is the most important things that we do every day. It is our moral, ethical, and legal obligation and is at the core of our business practices. We strive to embed safety awareness and safe behaviors in everything we do. We are dedicated to providing a safe service and a safe workplace.
Safety is an individual responsibility and our shared credo. 


Our values drive our behaviors and our decisions. We do our best to practice Transdev’s values of commitment, performance, partnership and passion in all of our relationships and encounters with others. 

Commitment:  We are dedicated to ongoing innovation and credible solutions to clients, passengers and communities. We collaborate with our clients to solve problems and we share best practices from around the world.

Performance We work to constantly improve our operational performance, service quality and results.

Partnership:  We build strong partnerships with our clients, customers, employees, communities and vendors. We work together in ways that build trust – keeping our promises, being respectful of others’ ideas, and acting with integrity.

Passion:  We are passionate about safely taking people where they need to go, and improving the quality of public transportation. We care deeply about encouraging diversity of people and ideas.

These values guide and motivate us. They influence our actions, choices and decisions. We strive to live our values every day. We commit to regularly discussing what we can do to more fully demonstrate our values-based behaviors while working together. The Transdev values, along with our Ethics and Code of Business Conduct, unify us with our colleagues in Transdev locations around the world. 


At Transdev, we strive to always act with honesty and integrity based on our shared ethical principles. Our purpose is to design and deliver high-quality, sustainable transportation solutions that make life better in cities and communities. We help clients improve quality of service and we work efficiently and cost effectively to help them achieve their goals.
Transdev does this by relying on its tens of thousands of employees who at all times and everywhere in the world must act and make decisions in accordance with strong ethical principles. We are committed to ethical behavior, honesty, integrity and consistency between our words and actions. These principles are summarized in our North American Code of Business Conduct and in Transdev’s Code of Ethics.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Transdev maintains a deep commitment to corporate social responsibility, which we define as sustainability, inclusion and service to our communities. Our company commits to a higher standard of corporate care with the environment, our employees, and communities we serve.

Sustainability:  We strive to take actions that respect the Earth and its fragile environment. Around the world we are working to reducing idling vehicles in our fleet and fuel consumption overall. We are aggressive in incorporating alternative fuels and low- and no-emission vehicles into our fleets whenever possible. Transdev is an industry leader in electric bus operations.

Inclusion:  We are proud of the diversity of our people and ideas. We work hard to respect different cultures, histories and perspectives of our vast workforce. Transdev values the contributions of all the members of our teams and are committed to developing our people and their capabilities. In addition, our goal is to have productive and respectful relationships with labor organizations, as well as with franchisees and independent contractors.

Communities:  Many of our employees—at all levels of the company—abide by a civic code of conduct that leads them to build homes for Habitat for Humanity, paint schools in need of repair, and volunteer whenever necessary in times of calm or crisis. At holidays we orchestrate many “Stuff-a-Bus” programs and collect clothing and many other items for people in need, often in partnership with local charities.

Living our Core Beliefs

We have carefully articulated the behaviors that will bring our Core Beliefs to life in our culture.   We encourage our teams to regularly discuss where they are doing a good job living our Core Beliefs and where they could do better.   We believe in transparent acknowledgement that we are striving to manifest these behaviors in our daily work practices, and that we are not perfect, but this is what we are committed to as a company and as individuals. 

Transdev North America is the largest private sector operator of multiple modes of transit in North America, providing bus, rail, paratransit, shuttle, sedan and taxi services. We manage over 200 transportation contracts for cities, transit authorities and airports, providing safe and sustainable mobility solutions. Our mission is to improve public transportation, to enhance quality of life and combat global warming.
