Operations & Maintenance of Streetcar and Light Rail
We are the global leader in the operations of light rail, including streetcar and tramway networks. We are committed to implementing and delivering on light rail solutions to support the renewal of city centers and the development of regional networks. In the U.S, our streetcar operations in Cincinnati and Milwaukee are two of our U.S. examples where our expertise of how we are leading the way is on full display.
Operations and Maintenance of Heavy Rail and Metro
Transdev has over 20 years of Rail Operations experience with 30 rail networks and 810 trains across five countries. We have solid expertise in managing and coordinating the transport modes between all of our various types of rail lines (inter-regional, suburban and rural, tourist). We also operate metro in France, where we are the operator of the metro line at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle. We have solid international experience with classic and all-electric metro systems.
In the U.S., Transdev has provided maintenance-of-way (MOW) services for some of the largest systems in the country, including California, Massachusetts, and Florida. We offer a fully integrated team skilled at managing projects quickly and efficiently to minimize operational service disruptions. Through decades of experience, Transdev’s rail maintenance and infrastructure team have constructed and maintained more than 6,000 miles of rail in the U.S.—enough to cross the continent twice. Our state-of-the-art equipment and dedication to safety help projects finish on time and on budget.
A Commitment to our Strong “Safety First” Culture
The safety of our employees, passengers, and communities we serve remain our highest priority at Transdev – and our Rail teams take this responsibility seriously.
- Self-Reporting Close Calls and Near Accidents
We set the expectation and tone. Operators and technicians are comfortable reporting mistakes for further examination. They do so without fear of penalty or retribution to work toward a common goal: the safest environment possible.
- Good Faith Challenges
All operators and maintenance technicians are empowered to, at any time, refuse to perform—without fear of punishment or retribution—any act they may deem unsafe and not in the best safety interests of the operation.
Beyond our commitment to providing our operators and technicians with vigorous training, our focus on safety includes the safety of our employees, subcontractors, the public, freight and passenger train operating crews, and passengers.
Continuously Improving Every Passenger Journey
As the leader integrator of multiple modes of transportation, we know how to ensure seamless integrations within and across networks to ensure a successful passenger journey. Whether it be through the operations and maintenance of various types of transportation and networks or ensuring that tracks are well maintained to ensure safety and comfort – Transdev helps enable seamless journeys.
