Solution

RATP Dev has been operating Kicéo since January 1, 2017. The bus system covers 23 towns within the Golfe du Morbihan - Vannes Agglomeration in Brittany, in the west of France. It also provides school transportation. 

The highly efficient geographical coverage ensures that more than 170,000 people have access to a rapid public transit solution. To optimize service and costs, RATP Dev has progressively restructured the system. It revolves around three main routes focusing on the city of Vannes, which will gradually speed up travel times as bus frequency increases to every ten minutes.

The other routes and timetables have also been revised to make the system run more smoothly. In addition, on-demand transportation routes improve service to outlying residential areas. Finally, handitransit now also benefits from evening service to cultural and sporting venues.

Kicéo is also matching new passenger practices by offering more digital services. For example, e-tickets can be bought via smartphone, and the "Mon car dans ma poche" app tracks school buses in real time.

"We have a comprehensive approach, one that incorporates all aspects of mobility across the region and optimizes digital possibilities, while keeping within the budget of the Golfe du Morbihan-Vannes Agglomération."
