Keolis has celebrated the group’s twentieth anniversary in Belgium
It all started back in December 1996, when 10 Belgian family businesses joined forces to set up the Eurobus Holding group. It allowed them to pool their resources and respond to the economic liberalisation of the market. After a while, Cariane – which was to become Keolis later – joined the group and Reniers was integrated in Flanders. The group continued to grow and in 2008, Keolis gradually acquired about thirty new companies and became the majority shareholder. After this, Flanders Coach Group joined Keolis, which doubled operations in the north of the country.
The logos of the subsidiaries and buses were ‘Keolised’ in 2011. Our Belgian group is now called Keolis Belgium, a dynamic company that continues to present excellent growth figures. In order to achieve Keolis Belgium’s ambitions for the future, we want our 45 companies to continue on this path and keep innovating. Keolis plays a major role in paid passenger traffic in Belgium and wants to evolve further into a mobility partner.
