FRANCE: Keolis is merging all its public transport related data and software development activities into a single entity called Hove, formed from the words Hive and Move.

Hove will take over the 110 employees of Kisio Digital and those of the data team of Kisio Services & Consulting. According to Keolis, it will offer a number of cutting-edge digital tools to private and public bodies in the transport sector, to help them adjust to the changes in passengers’ behaviour and expectations since the start of the pandemic.

Keolis hopes that by pooling its talents and expertise in this field, it will be able to form a better picture of passenger behaviour patterns, provide passengers and other users with better quality information, and increase the transport options available to them depending on their stated criteria.
